leave a comment »

Certified by the American Board of Vascular Medicine since 2006, Dr. Dominic Pedulla is also a board-certified vein specialist and cardiologist. He has gained recognition for his innovative work in medicine and the self-improvement field, earning the title of Regional Training Expert for vein physicians in endovenous ablation procedures, which was granted to him by AngioDynamics Inc. I had the opportunity to sit down with Dr. Dominic Pedulla, who is a homeschooling father of nine children, earlier this week to talk about his professional career and affiliations.

Q. First, I’d like to thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to talk with me today. Can you tell me about your professional education?

A. I’m glad to be here, and I’d be happy to. I first enrolled at Fordham University, where I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology in the early 1980s. I then attended New York Medical College, the university that granted me my Doctor of Medicine degree in 1986. I also participated in additional continuing education courses, such as a family planning course through Creighton University in 1999.

Q. I understand that you play a significant role in several professional organizations. What societies do you belong to?

A. I am a Diplomate of the American College of Phlebology and the American Board of Vascular Medicine. Beyond these organizations, I am a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology, a Medical Consultant for the Creighton Model Natural Family Planning System, a Legislative Council Member of the Oklahoma State Medical Association, and a Member of the American Society of Angiography and Intervention.

Q. Tell me about some of your community service efforts.

A. I have been an advocate for proper education for all children in the community, and I also remain a community sponsor and Board member for an association that creates athletic programs designed to benefit underprivileged children. In 2009, I embarked on a trip to the Dominican Republic as a missionary medical provider, and I am also a Board member of an international family planning foundation that works in third world countries around the world.

Oklahoma Vein & Endovascular Center

leave a comment »

A physician with over 15 years of experience in cardiology and vascular medicine, Dr. Dominic Pedulla applies his skills at the Oklahoma Vein & Endovascular Center, a practice he established in 1994. Widely regarded as Oklahoma City’s leading leg vein care facility, the Oklahoma Vein & Endovascular Center garners accolades for its innovative approach to managing endovascular disease and varicose veins. Utilizing the most advanced medical technology available, the Oklahoma Vein & Endovascular Center is committed to providing patients with standard-setting, minimally invasive treatment options.

Patients of the Oklahoma Vein & Endovascular Center are able to avoid long stays in a hospital, obtaining immediate relief and recovering quickly after a procedure. The Oklahoma Vein & Endovascular Center offers a wide range of services, including EVLT and VNUS procedures, sclerotherapy, ambulatory phlebectomy, ultrasound-assisted coronary stent implantation, endovascular leg stents, coronary plaque shaving, endovenous laser ablation, laser and light therapy, radiofrequency occlusion, and varicose vein surgery.

Of all the procedures undergone by patients of the Oklahoma Vein & Endovascular Center, sclerotherapy is one of the most common. A technique employed to combat varicose veins, sclerotherapy is capable of reducing the surface level appearance of such veins by 50–90 percent after only a few treatments. If ignored, varicose veins can cause a host of other health problems, such as blood clots (thrombosis), skin ulcers, unexpected bleeding, and phlebitis. Moreover, varicose veins tend to increase in number over time, creating additional abnormal veins that contribute to worsening symptoms. Sclerotherapy can be performed with or without the assistance of ultrasound technology. The Oklahoma Vein & Endovascular Center offers both methods, assessing an individual patient’s needs before selecting an appropriate course of action.
