The Vascular Experts—Diagnostic, Preventive Care and Treatment Services Our goal is to deliver the best patient experience with the highest level of patient care. We achieve this through the use of cutting-edge medical technology and the use of modern endovascular therapies (angioplasty/stent) as well as traditional procedures for treatment of vascular disease.
Our diagnosis and treatment services include:
- Diagnostic testing – with non-invasive methods such as Ultrasound and PVR
- Minimally invasive treatment – with non-surgical procedures
- Surgical treatment – performed in house or at local hospitals
Vascular Disease Specialists Serving Southern Connecticut Our physicians are vascular disease specialists with experience and training in the following:
- Aortic diseases: A number of life-threatening diseases are associated with the aorta, including aortic dissections, aneurysms, and occlusions. Our physicians are highly trained and experienced in treating both simple and complex aortic diseases using the most advanced medical technology available and the latest minimally invasive techniques.
- Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD): A common condition that develops when the arteries in the leg become narrow or blocked, causing poor circulation and later a hardening of the arteries. PAD can be easily diagnosed with a careful review of history, a physical exam, and non-invasive tests which are performed on site. Treatment includes a range of methods from conservative to minimally invasive balloon angioplasty and stenting to open surgical bypass procedures.
- Varicose veins and venous disease: These are not only a cosmetic concern, but can be serious medical conditions that lead to significant disability. These conditions can be diagnosed using our in-house non-invasive ultrasound imaging. In the past decade, minimally invasive procedures involving no incision have been developed to treat these conditions, including:
- laser ablation
- radiofrequency closure (RFA)
- Carotid artery disease: This refers to the formation of plaque and the resulting narrowing of the arteries that carry blood from the heart to the brain. If a portion of the plaque buildup should break free, it can travel to the brain and cause a stroke, a mini stroke, or temporary loss of vision. This condition can be diagnosed using our in-house non-invasive ultrasound technology. Once diagnosed, the problem can be treated according to the patient’s needs, either by medication, by a minimally invasive procedure called carotid stenting, or an open surgical repair in which the plaque is removed (carotid endarterectomy).
