Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm is the weakening of the wall of the Aorta in the abdomen. The weakening of the wall increases the likelihood of a rupture or tear of the Aorta. This is a very serious and life threatening condition if a rupture occurs.
Carotid artery disease occurs when there is a build-up of plaque (a process called atherosclerosis) in the carotid arteries. Located on either side of the neck, the carotid arteries supply blood and oxygen to the brain. Carotid artery disease is a major risk factor for both strokes and mini-strokes, also known as transient ischemic attacks (TIA).
During the procedure, the blockage in the carotid artery is removed via an incision in the neck. This procedure has a high success rate and typically only requires a one-night hospital stay.
Carotid artery stenting (CAS) is a procedure that can be used to open narrowed carotid arteries. It is also called carotid angioplasty and stenting.
Peripheral Artery Disease is the build up of blockage or plaque in the arteries of the legs. PAD is a progressive disease that takes years to progress and is seen most in the over 50 community.
Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty are minimally invasive procedures for the treatment of painful vertebral compression fractures (VCF), which are fractures involving the vertebral bodies that make up the spinal column.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or benign prostatic hypertrophy, is an enlargement of the prostate, a walnut-sized gland that forms part of the male reproductive system. During ejaculation, the prostate secretes fluid into the urethra, the narrow tube that runs through the center of the prostate.
Varicose veins are abnormally large veins commonly seen in the legs. Normally, blood circulates from the heart to the legs via arteries and back to the heart through veins. Veins contain one-way valves which allow blood to return from the legs against gravity. If the valves leak, blood pools in the veins, and they can become enlarged or varicose.
Uterine fibroids are noncancerous tumors that can develop during a woman’s childbearing years and cause symptoms including heavy menstrual bleeding, prolonged periods, and pelvic pain.
