After 20 years as a practicing vascular surgeon, Dr. Brazil turned his knowledge, medical expertise and joy of patient care to the much needed area of diagnosing disease of the vascular system.

He now limits his practice to diagnosing vascular disorders of the arteries and veins with special emphasis on peripheral arterial disease, carotid artery stenosis that could lead to stroke or heart attack, abdominal aortic aneurysms and doing venous procedures limited to endovenous laser ablation, sclerotherapy and microphlebectomy for treatment of varicose veins and spider veins.

From the beginning, Dr. Brazil wanted to assure patients that they were receiving the highest quality of care.  Toward that goal, the Vascular Center of Wichita Falls has been accredited by Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC formerly ICAVL) since 2000 and has maintained that accreditation.

Why an Accredited Vascular Lab?

The Vascular Center of Wichita Falls has been an Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC formerly ICAVL) accredited vascular diagnostic lab since 2000.   Through accreditation our patients can be assured of receiving high quality patient care with the goal of promoting health care to help our patients achieve the best quality of life possible through a long-term commitment to high standards of patient care, diagnosing and monitoring.

Below is a listing of the more common disorders of the blood vessels and the possible related diagnostic test you can expect when you present to our lab with these symptoms.  These tests are discussed in detail for you under Services.  All of the following tests are non-invasive, do not involve needlesticks or injections and are painless. 

Swollen and painful legs

Stroke or ministroke (transient ischemic attack)

Leg pain during walking (PAD or claudication)

Nonhealing sore of the foot or ankle (Arterial? or Venous?)

Follow-up of a leg artery stent or bypass graft

Pulsating abdominal mass

Poorly controlled high blood pressure

Varicose veins and leg swelling

Pain and color changes of the fingers (suspected Raynaud's)

Abdominal pain (unexplained and after eating)

Swelling of upper extremity (blood clot)

Upper Extremity pain, swelling numbness

Basically, the specific test that you will have done during your visit to the vascular laboratory will depend on your symptoms and the suspected vascular problem.
