Vascular Diseases We Treat
At 901 S Main St., our team of experienced vascular surgeons, medical specialists, and support staff work together to develop personalized treatment plans for each patient, tailored to their specific needs. Some of the diseases treated at our include:
- Peripheral Vascular Disease: Peripheral vascular disease is a condition in which there is a narrowing or blockage of the blood vessels that carry blood from the heart to the arms and legs. This can cause a range of symptoms, including leg pain, cramping, numbness, and weakness.
- Carotid Stenosis: Carotid stenosis is a condition in which the carotid arteries, which supply blood to the brain, become narrowed or blocked. It is commonly caused by a buildup of fatty deposits and cholesterol along the walls of the arteries, known as plaque. When the plaque builds up, it can reduce blood flow to the brain, potentially leading to a stroke.
- Deep Vein Thrombosis: Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a serious medical condition in which blood clots form in the deep veins of the body, most commonly in the legs. DVT can cause swelling, pain, and tenderness in the affected area. It is a potentially life-threatening condition as the blood clots can break loose and travel to other parts of the body, such as the lungs, causing a pulmonary embolism (PE).
- Venous Insufficiency: Venous insufficiency is a condition in which the veins in the legs are unable to transport blood back to the heart efficiently. It occurs when the valves within the veins become damaged or weakened, leading to the pooling of blood in the legs. This can cause symptoms such as varicose veins, leg pain, swelling, and skin discoloration or ulceration.
- Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a condition in which the abdominal aorta, the largest blood vessel in the abdomen, becomes abnormally enlarged. This can cause the wall of the aorta to weaken and bulge outward, increasing the risk of rupture. AAA is often asymptomatic and may be discovered incidentally during imaging tests for other conditions. However, larger aneurysms can cause abdominal or back pain, tenderness, or discomfort.
Whether you are in need of venous disease treatment, or in need of treatment for other vascular conditions, the Center for Vascular Diseases at Prima CARE is here to provide you with comprehensive and compassionate care. Our team of experienced and highly skilled interventional radiologists, vascular surgeons, and technologists are dedicated to providing patients with the best possible care and outcomes.
