Endovascular interventions are minimally invasive surgical procedures used to treat problems affecting the blood vessels.
In the past, vein-related health problems required complex and time-consuming open surgeries. Thanks to advances in surgical techniques and technologies, it’s now possible to receive the treatment you need without spending any time in the hospital.
Endovascular interventions provide shorter recovery times, less discomfort, and smaller incisions.
At New York Specialty Clinics, the team uses endovascular interventions to treat various heart and vein-related health problems, including:
You might also benefit from endovascular interventions if you experience a heart attack or stroke.
The team at New York Specialty Clinics offers several types of endovascular interventions, including:
Endovenous laser ablation is a minimally invasive procedure that uses laser energy to heat up and ultimately close varicose veins. It’s a safe and effective treatment that leaves behind no scars.
During treatment, your provider can close one or multiple veins. Once the veins collapse, your blood reroutes to healthier pathways throughout your body.
If you have narrowed or blocked arteries, your provider might recommend balloon angioplasty.
During this type of endovascular intervention, your provider carefully inserts a tiny balloon through a thin tube (catheter) into a vein. Once positioned, your provider inflates the balloon, restoring adequate blood flow.
If the balloon doesn’t significantly improve your circulation on its own, your provider might also place a stent. A stent is a tiny mesh device that holds your artery open.
If you have an aneurysm, vascular malformation, or tumor, the team might recommend embolization. Embolization uses prescription medication or synthetic substances to block blood flow to a certain area of your body.
Only a qualified medical doctor can determine if you will benefit from endovascular interventions. During your initial consultation, your New York Specialty Clinics provider conducts a physical exam, reviews your health history, and orders diagnostic testing.
After gathering the necessary information, they develop a custom treatment plan that aligns with your needs.
