What conditions do we treat?
At Weiss, our vascular surgeons offer a wide variety of vascular treatments for conditions such as:
- Limb salvage program
- Aortic aneurysm
- Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
- Dialysis access
- Carotid arterial disease (stroke prevention)
- Lower extremity peripheral arterial disease (PAD)
- Mesenteric and renal artery occlusive disease
- Varicose veins
How are vascular treatments performed?
The vascular surgeons at Weiss employ both non-operative therapies and surgical treatments. When possible, they utilize minimally invasive interventions such as angioplasty, stenting and stent grafting for PAD to reduce your period of recovery, scarring and pain during treatment. For non-operative therapies, your needs are met through our Noninvasive Vascular Laboratory
. Our Noninvasive Vascular Lab is IAC accredited and run by our highly experienced team using duplex ultrasonography to visualize and quantify plaque formation and arterial narrowing.
Why should I be concerned about my vascular health?
Vascular problems can put your health at risk, including an increased risk for stroke — the third most common cause of death in the United States. Our vascular center at Weiss Memorial Hospital can assess your risk for stroke through testing and imaging procedures. Vascular problems left untreated can lead to pain and discomfort, as well as more dangerous conditions such as a pulmonary embolism caused by blood clots. Receiving expert treatment can improve your health, reducing risks of more serious health concerns and improving your quality of life.
