Which doctor should I see for a Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) in Singapore?Vascular Surgery
Which specialist manages and treats deep vein thrombosis?
Thank you for your question. If you believe you have a DVT, it might be worth first visiting your nearest GP or ED.
You might need to be assessed and triaged correctly - this might involve an urgent ultrasound scan to determine if you have a DVT.
Subsequently you may need to see a general physician as there will be a period of time on anti-coagulation.
The duration depends on why it has happened and your future risk.
In terms of the DVT, it usually breaks down by itself, but what we don’t want a piece to break off and become a pulmonary embolism as this can be much more serious.
