Sclerotherapy is a procedure that treats blood vessels or blood vessel malformations (vascular malformations) as well as those of the lymphatic system.

Symptoms include:

  • Varicose veins
  • Spider veins

What does the procedure look like?
The surgeon injects a chemical solution into the veins. The solution scars the veins so they can no longer fill with blood, which instead flows through healthier veins. The body eventually absorbs the treated veins.

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

The aorta is the largest and main artery in the body. An Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) occurs when an area of the abdominal aorta expands or bulges due to a thinning of the wall. Approximately 200,000 people are diagnosed with abdominal aortic aneurysms each year.

Symptoms include:

  • A pulsating feeling in the abdomen
  • Sever, sudden pain in abdomen or lower back
  • You may develop pain, discoloration, and/or sores on the toes or feet

What does the procedure look like?
In the past, patients typically required a large abdominal incision to repair aneurysms. Today, most of our patients are candidates for minimally invasive aneurysm repair with the use of stent grafts.

Using small groin incisions, our surgeons can repair aneurysms more quickly. This means less blood loss, less pain, and a quicker recovery. Patients are typically observed overnight and sent home the following day.

Carotid Artery Disease

Carotid arteries are the arteries that supply the brain with blood. Carotid Artery Disease (CAD) occurs when these major arteries in your neck become narrowed or blocked.

Symptoms include:

  • Loss of vision, inability to speak clearly
  • Weakness or numbness on one side of your body
  • Inability to control movement of extremities

What does the procedure look like?
Carotid Artery Disease can be treated with a procedure called Carotid Endarterectomy in which a surgeon removes the plaque causing blockage of the artery.

The physician first makes an incision on the neck over the diseased artery. Clamps are placed on the carotid artery to restrict blood flow. The artery is opened and a temporary shunt is inserted to keep blood flowing to the brain. The plaque is then removed from the artery. After this, the artery is sewn back together. The original incision is sutured and covered with bandages.

Angioplasty and stenting are procedures that can also be used to treat this disease. Carotid angioplasty involves temporarily inserting a small balloon into the artery. The balloon is inflated when it reaches the blockage to allow blood to flow to the brain. A stent is a small, metal coil. It is inserted into the clogged artery to prop it open. This decreases the chance it will narrow in the future.

Peripheral Artery Disease

Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) occurs when arteries in the arms, legs, stomach, or head become narrowed. This leads to decreased blood or oxygen flow.

Symptoms include:

  • Discomfort or pain in your legs when you walk that goes away when you rest (claudication)
  • Pain in the feet or toes when resting (critical limb ischemia)
  • Severe forms of the disease can lead to sores on toes and feet

What does the procedure look like?
Treatments for PAD vary depending on the severity of the symptoms. Mild cases can be resolved with medication and exercise. However, more severe cases can be treated with minimally invasive options such as office based angioplasty/stents or traditional “open” reconstruction such as a bypass.
