What Is Endovascular Therapy?

Content

Endovascular therapies use minimally invasive techniques to repair blood vessels from the inside. Endovascular therapy is a widely accepted treatment for vascular problems in the lower extremities caused by peripheral artery disease (PAD).

Minimally invasive percutaneous approaches to endovascular repair access the organs and tissues through the skin. Rather than traditional open vascular surgery, percutaneous interventions use catheters or needle punctures though the skin. This means smaller incisions and faster recovery.

We offer the most advanced endovascular therapies to treat patients with peripheral vascular disease. Our team provides comprehensive, state-of-the-art therapeutic interventions for limb salvage and fast wound healing.
