    Arteries are major "highways" that carry blood through the body from the heart. When these major blood vessels become narrowed or blocked which makes it difficult for blood to pass through them, causing serious health associated complications. Fortunately, most artery problems can be treated by a vascular surgeon both surgically and medically.


    Conditions

    Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm 

    Abdominal aortic aneurysm is a balloon like bulge in the abdominal aorta, a major blood vessel the carries blood from the heart to other vessels in the body.

    Carotid Artery Problems

    Carotid arteries are in your neck that carry blood to the brain. Narrowing of the vessels and plaque deposits can build up in these arteries, constricting the arteries, affecting efficient blood flow to the brain, which can lead to health problems, including a stroke. 

    Peripheral Arterial Disease 

    Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a chronic condition in which diseased arteries interrupt blood flow to body tissues and organs. This condition can effect lower extremities, such as the legs. 


    Treatments

    Angioplasty

    Angioplasty is a procedure where a tiny balloon is placed via catheter to open blocked arteries 

    Stenting

    Stenting in a procedure where a tiny wire, mesh, tube is inserted into an artery to hold it open

    Carotid Endarterectomy 

    Carotis endarterectomy is a procdure to remove plaque via a small incision in the carotid artery (in your neck)

    Carotid Artery Stenting

    Carotid Artery Stenting is a procedure where a mesh tube (stent) is inserted via catheter that is inserted through a major artery in the groin, through the femoral artery.

    Endovascular Repair

    Endovascular repair is the placement of an artificial graft inside a damaged artery

    Bypass procedures
