Endovascular Therapy
Treatment of vascular disease has undergone tremendous change over the past decade. Non-surgical, minimally invasive approaches to the treatment of vascular disease have evolved which allow patients to undergo therapy with less discomfort and minimal impact on daily activities.

We are specially trained to perform minimally invasive endovascular procedures to treat many different disease processes. Our goal at Vascular Associates is to provide each patient with a treatment plan that is designed to improved quality of life and functional outcome without significant adverse impact on daily life.

Endovascular Aneurysm Repair
Modern treatment of aortic aneurysms involves placement of an endovascular stent graft which is a metal scaffolding covered with fabric that is inserted through two small incisions in the groin. This affords patients less discomfort, shorter hospital stay and faster return to daily activities compared to traditional open aneurysm surgery.

Patients are first evaluated with an abdominal CT scan to determine the precise size and shape of their aneurysm. Once patients are deemed appropriate for an aortic stent graft, the appropriate device is selected and the procedure performed in the endovascular operating suite. Most patients are able to be discharged home the following day.

Endovascular Treatment of Peripheral and Carotid Artery Disease
Minimally invasive treatment methods are now available for many vascular conditions previously treated only with open surgery. The endovascular specialists at Vascular Associates are specially trained to perform diagnostic angiography, angioplasty, stenting, peripheral atherectomy as well as many other techniques to treat vascular disease.

We are able to offer endovascular treatments for peripheral arterial disease involving any artery. Common procedures performed are angioplasty and/or stent placement in the iliac or superficial femoral arteries to treat intermittent claudication (pain with walking). We perform renal artery stenting to treat renal artery stenosis and mesenteric artery stenting to treat blockages in the intestinal arteries.

We specialize in endovascular treatment of carotid artery disease with angioplasty and stenting of the carotid arteries to treat and prevent stroke. Our endovascular specialists are certified to perform carotid angioplasty and stenting using FDA approved devices.

Endovascular Treatment of Venous Disease
We are able to apply endovascular techniques to the treatment of deep venous thrombosis (blood clots). We perform catheter directed thrombolysis (clot busters), mechanical thrombectomy (catheter removal of clot) and inferior vena cava filter placement to protect from clots traveling to the lungs (pulmonary embolism).

Surgical treatment of varicose veins has, for the most part, been supplanted by modern techniques which involve placement of a radiofrequency probe (VNUS) or laser into large varicosities allowing functional removal of the abnormal veins. In our Vein Clinic we use state-of-the-art technology to treat varicose veins and many other venous disorders.
