As we age, blood vessels tend to thicken and narrow due to a build-up of plaque and cholesterol. But for some individuals, this build-up restricts the blood flow, leading to vascular diseases and conditions such as aneurysms, deep vein thrombosis and peripheral arterial disease (PAD).
What’s worse, PAD can in turn lead to blood clots, difficulty walking, foot ulcers, gangrene and even loss of the limb. And aneurysms can be fatal if not treated appropriately.
The good news is vascular diseases are treatable. Flowers Hospital Heart and Vascular Institute provides specialized care in the area’s first endovascular hybrid lab with board certified, fellowship trained vascular surgeons treating vascular conditions that may be preventing you from enjoying a healthier life.
Flowers Hospital Heart and Vascular Institute offers treatment options for a vast spectrum of vascular diseases and conditions, including:
Often, patients may be candidates for minimally invasive procedures to treat vascular issues. Minimally invasive procedures use smaller incisions, which generally means shorter recovery times and reduced risk for infection. Best of all, our vascular services are backed by the full resources of Flowers Hospital.
