Vascular disease is a broad term used to describe conditions and diseases affecting the arteries and veins. These blood vessels are vital for blood circulation throughout the body, and problems with vascular function may result in adverse health effects.

Heart and vascular surgery
While not all vascular disease treatments are surgical, we perform a variety of heart and vascular surgeries and cater your surgical treatment plan to your particular condition. While some cases require interventional procedures such as endovascular surgery, open-chest surgery or carotid endarterectomy, we also perform minimally invasive procedures that shorten recovery times and reduce bodily trauma. As always, our team of vascular doctors focuses on determining the best course of cardiovascular treatment for your optimal health, but whenever possible, we opt for the least invasive option.
Minimally invasive treatments
Our vascular specialists use advanced diagnostic technology to track the development of plaque inside your arteries, so we can provide treatment before an intervention is necessary. Depending on your heart or artery's condition, open surgery may not always be necessary. In lieu of an interventional procedure, we can clear your blocked arteries through minimally invasive techniques.
Additionally, we are proud to offer the following minimally invasive treatments:
- Anticoagulation therapy
- Balloon angioplasty
- Coronary angioplasty
- Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)
Whether you are experiencing deep vein thrombosis or peripheral vascular disease, medication can be a beneficial treatment option that will both improve your condition and help you avoid surgery.
For conditions such as carotid artery stenosis and deep vein thrombosis, blood thinners are a potential option. For coronary artery disease or an aortic aneurysm, beta blockers are the preferred route. Your physician may prescribe daily aspirin for peripheral artery disease or coronary artery disease. Regardless of the prescription, we are here to go over the best options for your condition.
