If you suffer from vascular disease, it can keep you from living your fullest life. Whether it has been caused by genetics, injury, infection, varicose veins or another condition (such as diabetes or heart disease), vascular disease can lead to serious complications. Fortunately, the medical staff at White Plains Hospital specializes in the various methods of treating vascular disease.
Our vascular surgeons are exceptionally qualified to perform procedures using the latest minimally invasive techniques as well as traditional "open" methods to treat vascular conditions like:
- Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA)
- Carotid artery
- Diseases of the peripheral arteries (PAD)
- Renal (kidney) artery disease
- Venous stasis disease
- Varicose veins
- Dialysis and chemotherapy access
The vascular team at the Hospital takes a comprehensive approach to treating all forms of vascular disease with the goal of achieving the best patient outcomes. We apply leading-edge techniques that promote a reduction in patient discomfort, recovery time and scarring.
Since time is of the essence in diagnosing and managing vascular problems, the Hospital offers a complete, state-of-the-art vascular testing lab to assess each patient’s individual needs.
Our testing modalities include both invasive and noninvasive options, including angiography, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound (Doppler) studies.
These studies are not only helpful in diagnosing existing vascular problems, but often they can provide information helpful in preventing life-threatening conditions, like stroke and ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm.
