We specialize in minimally invasive treatments that are maximally effective
Angioplasty refers to the use of a balloon to dilate a narrowed or blocked blood vessel to increase the size of the channel that blood can flow through. Following angioplasty, the balloon is removed from the blood vessel.
Stent placement refers to the use of a metal scaffold to help keep a dilated blood vessel open. There are different types and sizes of stents. Once placed, the stent remains within the blood vessel.
Atherectomy refers to the use of a device to remove plaque that is causing a narrowing of an artery. There are different types of atherectomy. Atherectomy is often used in combination with angioplasty and stent placement to achieve an ideal result.
Endovenous ablation refers to the use of a laser or radiofrequency catheter to close a leaking varicose vein by applying heat to the vein wall. This procedure is remarkably effective in decreasing symptoms from venous insufficiency and can improve the cosmetic appearance of varicose veins as well.
ENDOVASCULAR REPAIR OF ANEURYSM
Endovascular aneurysm repair refers to the latest minimally invasive techniques to treat aneurysms that were previously treated with open surgery. The weak parts of the aneurysmal artery are lined and reinforced with a stent/graft and the aneurysm is thereby excluded from the flow of blood.
Embolization is a technique to stop blood flow to a certain part of the body. This can be done by inserting a small catheter into the desired blood vessel and injecting embolic materials such as small metal coils or tiny particles. Embolization is performed for a variety of indications such as bleeding, tumor, or benign conditions such as uterine fibroids
