Vascular Conditions We Treat

Find surgical and non-surgical treatment of a wide range of conditions that affect your blood vessels, including:

  • Aneurysms – Weak, overstretched areas of an artery
    • Abdominal aortic aneurysm
    • Thoracic aortic aneurysm
  • Atherosclerosis – Buildup of plaque in the arteries; often called “hardening of the arteries”
  • Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) or venous reflux – Blood collects in the leg veins due to ineffective leg veins
  • Deep vein thrombosis – Blood clot in the leg veins
  • Mesenteric artery ischemia – Narrowing or blockage in the arteries that supply blood to the intestines
  • Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) or peripheral vascular disease (PVD) – Narrowed or blocked arteries due to a buildup of plaque
  • Renal artery stenosis – Narrowing or blockage of the arteries that supply blood to the kidney
  • Spider veins – A group of enlarged veins near the surface of the skin
  • Stasis dermatitis – Change in the skin caused by blood pooling in the leg veins
  • Varicose veins – Twisted, enlarged veins near the surface of the skin

Services & Treatments We Offer

Count on the skilled and experienced surgeons at Cone Health to diagnose your vascular or vein condition, explain your treatment options, and provide care that results in the best possible outcome.

Diagnostic Services

Get an accurate diagnosis so you can get the best care for your specific vascular condition. Your physician may ask you to take advantage of one of the following in-office tests:

  • Ankle brachial index – Evaluates your circulation by measuring the blood pressure in your ankle and your arm
  • Doppler ultrasound – Shows how blood flows through your veins and arteries
  • Duplex ultrasound – Reveals the structure of your blood vessels
  • Exercise testing – Assesses your circulation by monitoring your blood pressure while you exercise on a treadmill or stationary bicycle

Treatments for Artery Conditions

Rely on Cone Health specialists for a variety of vascular procedures, including:

  • Angioplasty – Restores blood flow through an artery narrowed by plaque
  • Carotid artery surgery – Restores proper blood flow to the brain
  • Hemodialysis access – Creates an easy-to-use entryway to your bloodstream for dialysis or other procedures
  • Renal and mesenteric artery bypass – Create an alternate route for blood to flow around a blocked artery; also called artery reconstruction
  • Stenting – Places a wire mesh tube in the artery to keep it open

Treatments for Vein Conditions

Trust CHMG surgeons to improve the function and appearance of your veins with procedures such as:

  • Laser vein ablation – Improves circulation by sealing off varicose veins using heat from a laser
  • Radiofrequency ablation closure (RF closure) – Improves circulation by sealing off varicose veins using radio waves
  • Sclerotherapy – Injects a solution into a spider vein, causing it to collapse and fade

Minimally Invasive Endovascular Procedures

Whenever possible, our vascular surgeons use minimally invasive techniques instead of open surgery. During an endovascular procedure, your surgeon treats your circulatory condition using a long, thin, flexible tube called a catheter and special surgical tools.

Because the procedure uses smaller incisions, you’ll benefit from:

  • Less pain and scarring
  • Lower risk of complications
  • A quicker recovery

CHMG vascular surgeons commonly use endovascular procedures to repair aneurysms and treat varicose veins.
