Because the vascular system is so complex and far reaching, diseases can appear anywhere in the body in many different forms. Arterial and vascular disease often occurs along with other diseases like diabetes or heart disease. The most common include, PAD, CVI, and May-Thurner Syndrome. Using Interventional Radiology, we use minimally-invasive techniques to replace open surgeries.
These procedures are done through tiny nicks in the skin to enter the patient’s arteries and veins to provide pinpoint treatment right where the problem exists. Since the procedure is done through the patient’s wrist or groin, and not open surgery, there is minimal pain and recovery times are measured in hours or days unlike traditional surgery which requires weeks or months.
