Customized Treatment Options

Treatments for vascular disease may require medical management, endovascular (interventional) treatments, surgical procedures and even preventative care strategies. Often treatments will involve more than one approach, includingmedical management, hybrid interventional/surgical care, physical therapy and exercise. This philosophy is the backbone of multidisciplinary comprehensive care. Other treatment options include:

  • Aneurysm Repairs: performed either surgically or by using special catheters, stent grafts.
  • Endarterectomy: open surgical procedure that removes plaque from the artery.
  • Angioplasty: a mechanical widening of narrowed or obstructed arteries using balloons/catheters/stents.
  • Vascular Bypass: a surgical procedure performed for inadequate blood flow to a region of the body.
  • Endovenous Ablation: radiofrequency or laser treatment of a diseased vein.
  • Varicose Vein Management: including sclerotherapy, open surgery, and new minimally invasive treatments for varicose veins, spider veins and chronic venous insufficiency that often make surgery unnecessary.
  • Wound Management: skin ulcer care (arterial/venous/neuropathic), debridement (chemical, mechanical, surgical), skin grafting, wound compression, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and other wound care strategies.
  • Foot Care: comprehensive diagnostic, therapeutic, and instructional care to address poor circulation or neuropathy.
