Vascular Conditions We Treat

Get a diagnosis and treatment for many vascular conditions, including:

Even if you’re not experiencing symptoms of a vascular condition, check the health of your blood vessels with noninvasive vascular screenings.

Vascular Treatments

Turn to Mount Auburn Hospital’s vascular surgeons when you need a procedure such as:

  • Aneurysm repair – Reinforces a weakened section of a blood vessel to prevent rupture
  • Angioplasty and stenting – Opens a blocked artery to your heart to improve blood flow
  • Carotid endarterectomy – Removes plaque from the carotid artery to increase blood flow to your brain
  • Saphenous vein ablation – Closes off twisted, enlarged (varicose) veins

Endovascular Surgery

Depending on your condition and procedure, you may qualify for endovascular surgery, a minimally invasive technique in which a surgeon sends tiny tools into your arteries or veins to diagnose or treat a problem. He or she can see inside your blood vessels because of a special dye injected into them to make them show up on real-time X-ray technology.
