Vascular Care & Surgery

Trust the skilled vascular specialists at PIH Health to diagnose and treat vascular diseases and conditions.

Vascular Disease

Vascular disease is any condition that affects your arteries, lymph vessels or veins. Get care for problems that affect your circulatory system, such as:

    • Aneurysm – Enlargement of an artery (bulge) due to a weak spot on the wall of the artery
    • Atherosclerosis – Plaque buildup that slows blood flow through arteries
    • Carotid artery disease – Buildup of plaque that slows blood flow in the arteries to your brain and increases the risk of stroke
    • Deep vein thrombosis – Blood clots in the veins in your leg, causing pain
    • Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) – Narrowing or blockage of the blood vessels, reducing blood flow to your legs
    • Renal artery stenosis – Thinning of arteries that carry blood to the kidneys
    • Varicose veins – Twisted, swollen veins that can make your legs ache

Screening & Diagnosis

Get an accurate screening and diagnosis of vascular conditions. Your doctor will use advanced technology to find problems early – even before you experience symptoms.

Personalized Care Plans

Partner with the vascular care team at PIH Health to create a plan that fits your needs. Depending on your condition, your plan may include:

  • Cardiac catheterization for diagnosis or treatment, including transradial cardiac catheterization
  • Education on risk factors and prevention
  • Lifestyle changes such as eating a healthy diet and quitting tobacco use
  • Surgery
  • Therapy to strengthen your body’s circulatory system
  • Thrombolytic therapy to dissolve blood clots using medication
  • Varicose vein treatment

Vascular Surgery & Procedures

Depending on your symptoms and condition, you may benefit from:

  • Aneurysm repair – Uses an open or a minimally invasive procedure to repair an aneurysm (weak area of an artery)
  • Angiogram and angioplasty/stent – Opens narrowed arteries by clearing plaque buildup
  • Atherectomy – Removes plaque in arteries using a safe laser
  • Endovascular repair of aortic aneurysm (EVAR) – Repairs aneurysms, weak bulging area in the wall of your aorta, the body’s largest artery in the abdomen
  • Carotid endarterectomy – Removes plaque in the arteries to the brain to lower the risk of stroke
  • Coronary artery bypass surgery (CABS) – Uses healthy blood vessels from your body to bypass the blocked or narrowed portion of the coronary artery
  • Dialysis access procedure – Placement of fistula, graft or catheter to be used for dialysis
  • Peripheral bypass surgery – Improves circulation by rerouting blood flood flow around a blocked artery in your leg
  • Pulmonary thromboendarterectomy – Removes blood clots from the arteries in the lungs
  • Transcarotid artery revascularization (TCAR) - minimally invasive approach to treat carotid artery disease
  • Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) - Repairs aneurysms, weak bulging area in the wall of your aorta, the body’s largest artery
  • Uterine artery embolization – Treats uterine fibroids, noncancerous growths in the uterus
  • Venous ablation therapy – Treatment of symptomatic varicose veins in legs

Minimally Invasive Treatments

Trust your doctor to recommend the least invasive treatment whenever possible, so you can:

  • Experience less pain
  • Have fewer complications
  • Recover faster
  • Return to your normal activities sooner
