We are committed to providing excellent care in the treatment of cardiovascular and thoracic illnesses. Our providers are experts in their field and ready to assist you in your journey of healing.
We offer a variety of surgical and minimally invasive procedures. Many of these can be done in the comfort and convenience of our office in a safe quiet environment.
An angiogram is an X-ray procedure that can be both diagnostic and therapeutic.
Venous ultrasound uses sound waves to produce images of the veins in the body.
Lower extremity arterial disease—also known as peripheral artery disease, lower extremity—occurs when plaque forms in a leg artery, blocking blood flow.
Helping every step of the way.
We pride ourselves in our top notch diagnostic testing and procedures. With state of the art equipment, our team will make sure you are comfortable and protected.
Diagnostic testing we offer
A Doppler Ultrasound is a test that uses high-frequency sound waves to measure the amount of blood flow through your arteries and veins, usually those that supply blood to your head, arms and legs.
Angiography or arteriography is a medical imaging technique used to visualize the inside, or lumen, of blood vessels. A contrast dye is introduced to the blood vessel and an fluoroscopic image is obtained. Angiography is an excellent way to visualize blockages, fistulas and aneurysms.
Intravascular Ultrasound or IVUS uses sound waves to produce an image of the arteries to see their condition. The sound waves travel through a tube called a catheter. The catheter is threaded through an artery . This test lets doctors look inside your blood vessels. IVUS is rarely done alone or as a strictly diagnostic procedure. It is usually done at the same time that a percutaneous intervention, such as angioplasty, and / or atherectomy is being performed.
Common conditions we treat
Results from abnormalities in the veins of the legs or pelvis and can result in pain, chronic swelling, bleeding, and ulcerations
Spider veins are not individually taken as a serious venous disease. However, additional symptoms may confirm the presence of another venous disease.
Peripheral Artery Disease
Peripheral artery disease affects millions of people annually and is associated with pain, nonhealing wounds, and amputation. Treatment consists of lifestyle changes, medical therapy, and interventional and surgical procedures designed to restore blood flow to the legs and feet.
Carotid Artery Stenting with TCAR
A potential complication of both surgery (carotid endarterectomy, or CEA) and stenting for stroke prevention in patients with carotid artery disease is a stroke occurring during the procedure itself. Studies have shown a higher risk of stroke during conventional stenting as compared to surgery.
The new minimally invasive transcarotid artery revascularization (TCAR) procedure that uses a special transcarotid neuro-protection system (NPS) is designed to reduce the risk of stroke during the insertion of the stent.
The novel NPS device allows the surgeon to directly access the common carotid artery in the neck and initiate high-rate temporary blood flow reversal to protect the brain from stroke while delivering and implanting the stent.
The TCAR procedure is performed through a small incision at the neckline just above the clavicle. This incision is much smaller than a typical CEA incision. The surgeon places a tube directly into the carotid artery and connects it to the NPS that directs blood flow away from the brain, to protect against plaque that may come loose reaching the brain.
Carotid endarterectomy is a procedure to treat carotid artery disease. This disease occurs when fatty, waxy deposits build up in one of the carotid arteries. The carotid arteries are blood vessels located on each side of your neck (carotid arteries). This buildup of plaque (atherosclerosis) may restrict blood flow to your brain. Removing plaque causing the narrowing in the artery can improve blood flow in your carotid artery and reduce your risk of stroke.
