Vascular medicine focuses on conditions and diseases that affect blood vessels and impair blood flow. Vascular disease can contribute to coronary artery disease (heart attack) and stroke, two of the leading causes of death and disability in the U.S.
Increasingly considered one of the most under-recognized and under-treated conditions in the United States, vascular disease involves diseases and conditions that impair blood flow and requires a complete, integrated, and multispecialty approach encompassing prevention, identification, and long-term disease management. Our vascular medicine specialists are dedicated to improving the lives of patients at risk of heart attack and stroke as a result of untreated vascular disease.
Vascular medicine specialists diagnose and treat problems of the arteries, veins and lymphatics including:
- Peripheral artery disease (PAD)
- Carotid artery disease
- Aortic disease
- Renovascular disease
- Coronary artery disease
- Cerebrovascular disease (stroke)
- Venous disease (leg swelling, varicose veins, vasculitis)
- Resistant hypertension
