<h3> Vascular Treatments </h3>

Stents open a closed blood vessel in order to improve the blood flow.  Your vascular specialist will place a metal wire mesh tube into your vessel. This mesh will allow for blood to flow freely while keeping the artery’s walls from collapsing in the future.

Laser Atherectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that will reduce the buildup of plaque in your vessels. Your vascular doctor will insert a special blade tipped catheter into your blood vessel. The specially designed tip will remove the plaque from the vessel wall. Your doctor will use a second tool that will suction the debris from the vessel. Laser Atherectomy is often used in conjunction with the stent procedure.

By-Pass Surgery is not just for your heart. Many patients will think of major heart surgery when they hear by-pass. Our vascular specialist team use bypass surgery to treat vascular diseases like PAD and upper extremity artery disease. During your bypass surgery your doctor will create a new pathway for your blood to flow. Depending on the health of your vessels your new pathway will be formed from your own veins, or from a synthetic material. The goal of bypass surgery is to reroute normal blood flow.

These are only a few of the treatments our vascular center offer. For a full list of treatments and diagnostic methods please refer to Our Services page. To speak with a member of our caring staff contact one of our Maryland and Metro DC area Centers for Vascular Medicine. Our team
