Our research continues to advance the understanding of autonomic dysfunction as it relates to diseases and conditions such as MS, Lyme, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, POTS, and others. Our diagnosis and treatment program is unmatched, as is evidenced by our high patient response rates.
Michael Arata, M.D.
Dr. Arata is an innovator in the treatment of dysautonomia. He was the first physician to recognize the potential of endovenous dilation to improve autonomic function by stimulation of the venous distension reflex. Internationally recognized in both the treatment of venous disease and interventional radiology, Dr. Arata has performed many thousands of image-guided procedures. This experience lead to development of a minimally invasive treatment for those suffering symptoms of dysautonomia. The initial results of saftey and efficacy of this treatment called TVAM have been published in peer-reviewed medical journals including Phlebology, Acta Phlebologica and the Journal of Endovascular Therapy.
Our Success Rates
We’ve performed several hundred TVAM procedures, maintaining a 100% technical success rate. The initial publication regarding this treatment demonstrated a clinical (patient response) success rate in excess of 90%. Our treatment program begins with a clinical assessment, followed by autonomic testing. Treatment may lead to symptom relief during and directly after the procedure. While not all patients will respond to TVAM repeat performance of the procedure has yet to be performed on a patient.
