All conditions and diseases of the vascular system—the arteries, veins and blood vessels in your body—can be treated with vascular surgery when appropriate for your specific situation. You and your primary doctor can rely on the vascular surgeons at Tri-City Medical Center’s Cardiovascular Health Institute to work with you and other medical specialists in developing an accurate diagnosis and a treatment plan that best meets your needs.
Your Best Choice for Vascular Surgery
Vascular specialists focus on caring for non-heart-related vascular disease using medical therapy (medications) and endovascular (minimally invasive) procedures involving thin, flexible tubes called catheters, as well as open surgical techniques to reconstruct arteries and veins.
When you choose Tri-City Medical, you’re screened for cardiac risk factors. And you can take advantage of our expertise with a wide range of treatment options related to:
- Cerebrovascular conditions
- Dialysis access
- Peripheral vascular conditions
Carotid Endarterectomy – Just One of Our Highly Rated Procedures
Carotid endarterectomy, our most commonly performed minimally invasive procedure, removes plaque that can narrow or block the artery and lead to stroke. You know you can rely on Tri-City Medical Center because Healthgrades.com recently gave its highest rating—five stars—to acknowledge our significantly lower-than-predicted rate of complication for the procedure. And if appropriate for your care, a stent may be inserted in your carotid artery to help keep it open over time.
Collaborative Approach to Vascular Care
As many treatment procedures shift to minimally invasive techniques, the vascular surgeons at Tri-City Medical keep your best interests in mind. We regularly collaborate with our interventional radiology group, our cardiologists and our cardiac surgeons to offer the full spectrum of treatment and assist you and your doctor in choosing the best options for your situation. When appropriate, we also make referrals to other specialists.
