This minimally invasive technique involves navigating a catheter through blood vessels to address issues like blockages or aneurysms. With reduced recovery time, minimal scarring, and lower complications, endovascular surgery is a patient-friendly alternative.

Will the endovascular approach benefit me?

If you have a condition such as an arterial blockage, aneurysm, or a vascular disease such as peripheral artery disease or coronary artery disease, you can experience significant benefits from our endovascular approach. This advanced technique is adept at addressing various vascular challenges, ensuring a streamlined and effective alternative to traditional surgical methods. Whether it's managing issues related to the heart, arteries, or veins, the endovascular approach stands as a patient-friendly solution, reducing recovery time and discomfort for those seeking comprehensive vascular care.

Endovascular vs. vascular surgery

Opting for endovascular surgery over traditional vascular procedures signifies a state-of-the-art approach to tackling vascular issues with precision and minimal disruption. Unlike conventional surgery that may involve larger incisions, endovascular techniques utilize a catheter threaded through blood vessels, reaching the problem area directly. This minimally invasive method ensures a quicker recovery, less scarring, and a reduced risk of complications. Using real-time imaging, our skilled medical team guides this catheter to address concerns like blockages or aneurysms, promoting optimal blood flow. We focus on patient well-being, and endovascular surgery provides a modern and patient-friendly alternative, prioritizing effectiveness and convenience.

Will my endovascular procedure be painful?

Endovascular procedures typically use local anesthesia, ensuring your comfort without general sedation. You may feel a mild stinging sensation during the procedure, but discomfort is generally minimal. The recovery period is characterized by reduced pain and a quicker return to daily activities compared to traditional surgery. You can expect to experience some swelling or discomfort post-procedure, but these effects usually subside within the first week.
