Physicians' Background

Murat Sor, M.D.

HealthQare is a new concept in vascular and interventional radiology care that has developed out of the private practice of Dr. Murat Sor, an interventional radiologist at Virginia Hospital Center since 1997.

Dr. Sor’s expertise covers vascular and interventional radiology, venous insufficiency and pain management.

He serves as an adjunct instructor of Radiology for George Washington University Medical Center.

After receiving his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Sor completed his medical education at George Washington University School of Medicine. He completed his internship at Washington Hospital Center and his residency and fellowship training at George Washington University School of Medicine.

Dr. Sor has been named as a Washingtonian Top Doctor in Interventional Radiology for the years 2005 and 2008.

Dr Sor’s other areas of clinical interest include Aesthetic Treatments (Botox, Dermal Fillers, Chemical Peels), Uterine Fibroid Embolization, Pelvic Venous Congestion Syndrome and Peripheral Vascular Disease.

Dr Sor has been featured recently on NBC4 discussing the benefits of new, minimally invasive vein treatment options.

Procedures & Services

 

If you have varicose and/or spider veins, we will provide you with the most effective treatments available, including laser ablation. You will receive a personalized consultation to help determine the causes of your vein problems and choose the treatment that is best for you—all in a convenient and comfortable office.

Understanding Venous Insufficiency

Healthy leg veins contain valves that open and close to assist the return flow of blood from the limbs to the heart. Venous insufficiency occurs when the valves do not open and close properly, preventing proper blood flow. The increased pressure on the veins causes them to become
enlarged (varicose).

Varicose veins are unusually enlarged veins that have filled with an abnormal amount of blood. They may protrude on the skin and appear twisted and rope-like. They are often associated with symptoms such as pain, achiness, fatigue, heaviness, swelling, burning and itching which tend to worsen at night. People without visible varicose veins can still have symptoms. The symptoms can arise from spider veins as well as from varicose veins, because, in both cases, the symptoms are caused by pressure on nerves by dilated veins.

Have you been told you have venous insufficiency? If so, you’re not alone.

Approximately half of the U.S. population has venous disease—50 to 55 percent of women and 40 to 45 percent of men. Of these, 20 to 25 percent of the women and 10 to 15 percent of men will have visible varicose veins. Varicose veins affect one out of two people age 50 and older, and 15 to 25 percent of all adults.

Symptoms

Symptoms caused by venous insufficiency and varicose veins also include leg aching, pain, and heaviness. These symptoms tend to be worse by the end of the day and are relieved by rest and elevating the legs. With advanced venous insufficiency, open wounds may develop. These are called venous stasis ulcers.

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, or have noticed other discomforts you believe are caused from venous insufficiency and/or varicose veins, don’t wait to seek medical attention. We offer several treatment options that will quickly and effectively relieve your symptoms, and have you feeling like yourself again.

Diagnosis

We will assess the valves within your leg veins though an ultrasound examination. We then develop a vein map that distinguishes your good vein from the ones with leaky valves. Once we have pinpointed the impaired veins, we can target those veins for treatment.
