Get Personal Attention For Your Vascular Health Issues
Many vascular surgery procedures may not be familiar to you until you are diagnosed with a vascular problem. Vascular issues are health problems related to the veins – from brain aneurysms to varicose veins. Vascular problems can be serious, but today’s modern techniques and technologies can help make these conditions quite treatable.
Dr. Buch has extensive experience undertaking vascular surgical procedures and provides personal attention to your health concerns. He also works to ensure you have the information that can provide peace of mind for your procedure. For example:
1.) Repairing an aneurysm
An aneurysm is an enlargement of an artery caused by weakening of the artery wall. Depending on the location and severity, repair may be undertaken as an endovascular or open surgery procedure. The treatment is designed to prevent the possibility of the aneurysm rupturing, which is a life-threatening situation.
2.) Restoring blood flow to the brain with carotid artery surgery
Blood flow in either or both of your carotid arteries (located on each side of the neck) can become partially or totally blocked by a sticky substance called plaque. This reduces blood supply to your brain and can cause a stroke. Carotid artery surgery is undertaken to clear the plaque and help prevent a stroke from occurring.
3.) Restoring blood supply to the kidneys with renal artery surgery
Disease of the arteries that supply blood to the kidneys is a condition known as renal artery stenosis. Treatments used to widen or open your arteries may include:
- Renal angioplasty
4.) Reducing and eliminating varicose veins
It is now possible to safely and effectively restore proper blood flow in the legs by eliminating varicose veins. Treatment methods include:
- Collapsing the veins from the inside with heat
- Removing the vein surgically
- Sclerotherapy – a procedure used to eliminate varicose veins and spider veins using injections of a salt solution into the vein. This causes it to collapse and eventually be absorbed by the body.
Some vascular surgeries may require a short hospital stay, but most are laparoscopic procedures that are performed as outpatient procedures. To learn more, call us today: 908-725-8755.
