Strokes / Prevention

Our Practice is heavily involved in Stroke Prevention. We offer screening of the Carotid arteries with Ultrasound in our Vascular Lab and Treat Blockages in those arteries that are tight enough to cause symptoms like warning for a stroke ( TIA ) or mini-strokes.

Treatment options include Carotid Endarterectomy where the plaque is removed under Anesthesia via an incision in the neck or Carotid Stenting for high risk patients who cannot undergo an operation usually done under Local with minimal sedation via a puncture in the groin. Our practice has high volume experience with both procedures with stroke rates below 1%.
