Innovative Surgical Techniques to Treat Vascular Diseases
Highly skilled vascular specialists at Loyola Medicine are expert at diagnosing and treating a variety of vascular diseases. Vascular disease encompasses any condition that affects the circulatory system and is the result of artery blockage caused by the buildup of plaque, which reduces blood flow to your arms, legs and abdominal organs.
While some vascular diseases require open vascular surgery to clear blockage, others may be treatable with minimally invasive, endovascular surgery. Endovascular, or surgery “within” your blood vessels, provides an alternative to traditional open surgery and often results in less recovery time.
Regardless of your specific artery disease, Loyola’s vascular care specialists are expert at treating a wide variety of arterial diseases and have a vast array of treatment options from which to choose. They will perform a comprehensive disease assessment and provide a personalized treatment plan that is right for you. Your doctor may recommend the following vascular therapies for treatment of your blocked blood vessels:
- Aortic aneurysm repair
- Balloon angioplasty
- Bypass surgery
- Carotid endarterectomy
- Endovascular stenting
- Endovenous laser therapy
- Radiofrequency ablation
