Vascular and Endovascular therapy is changing the way heart attacks, stroke and various other medical conditions are being treated. Many problems that once required invasive surgery can now be fixed using minimally invasive procedures, with catheters instead of scalpels. Because these procedures are less invasive, patients spend less time in the hospital, less time recovering and can get back to their daily routine sooner.
At Winchester Medical Center, endovascular specialists take a multidisciplinary approach, from the initial consultation to postoperative care. This therapeutic approach enables them to provide personalized treatment plans for everything from blocked blood vessels to aneurysms and more.
Our endovascular surgery experts treat the following vascular and endovascular conditions:
• Arterial aneurysms
• Cerebrovascular occlusive disease
• Lower extremity arterial occlusive disease
• Acute and chronic visceral ischemia
• Renovascular hypertension
• Deep venous thrombosis and clotting disorders
• Dialysis access
• Venous and lymphatic disorders including varicose veins
• Limb Preservation Program
Many endovscular techniques are performed by Interventional Radiologists (IR). IR physicians are highly trained subspecialist who are skilled in both diagnostic imaging and in percutaneous (through the skin) therapeutic procedures. IR has been officially recognized as a specialty since 1992. Today there are approximately 4000 interventional radiologists in the United States.
