Interventional and Peripheral Vascular Program
Our skilled vascular surgeons and cardiologists pinpoint and treat blockages in the circulatory system to ease your discomfort and restore your quality of life.
The Interventional and Peripheral Vascular Program at the Orlando Health Heart Institute is home to a group of skilled peripheral vascular surgeons and interventional cardiologists who treat specific conditions that affect the circulatory system, such as blockage in the lower extremities or carotid arteries. Many of our physicians participate in research trials investigating new procedures that can be offered to our patients through clinical trials well before such advances are widely available.
Often, a patient will not be aware of an artery blockage blockage until the artery is blocked 70 percent or more. Symptoms may range from severe leg pain to complete loss of circulation and the beginning of gangrene. To restore blood flow to the affected areas, our highly trained team works fast to perform the diagnostic studies needed to identify the exact location of the blockage. Many blockages can be treated using minimally invasive techniques such as angioplasty and stents while more severe disease may require bypass surgery.
With your health and comfort as our top priority, our specialists find the best solution to ease your discomfort, and restore your quality of life. We also develop treatment plans to support lifestyle changes that may have contributed to this condition, and we monitor your progress as you incorporate these changes into your life, helping to manage your condition long-term.
