Over 80 million Americans have health problems related to their blood vessels, from blood clots to varicose veins.
Your blood vessels are tiny and fragile. The smallest ones are about one-third the width of a single strand of hair. The largest is only about one inch across. If you have an artery or vein disease, trust your delicate blood vessels to Emory vascular surgeons.
Our team has developed and refined the groundbreaking procedures. Plus, since the 1990s, our doctors have led the move to minimally invasive treatments, often delivering care through just one tiny incision. These minimally invasive procedures lower your risk of bleeding, pain, and infection while speeding up your recovery time.
Some of our treatment options include:
- Balloon angioplasty to widen narrow blood vessels
- Advanced technologies to treat peripheral arterial disease
- Surgery to restore blood flow (revascularization)
- Stents to support arteries and keep blood vessels open
- Carotid endarterectomy to clean plaque build-up out of your carotid artery, reducing your risk of stroke
- Thrombolytic therapy to break up blood clots quickly
- Laser and radiofrequency treatments for varicose veins
- Sclerotherapy to close spider veins using medicines
