Vascular Conditions We Treat
There are many non-cardiac conditions that can affect your blood vessels and circulation, including:
- Peripheral artery disease (PAD)
- Carotid artery disease (CAD)
- Blood clots
- Arterial stenosis
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Vascular stenosis
- Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA)
Many vascular conditions occur due to the buildup of plaque or other substances within the blood vessels, which can block blood flow and cause severe disability or death. PAD, in particular, is a common condition not often recognized until the problem becomes progressively worse, leading to heart attack or stroke.
