As we age, it’s not uncommon to experience problems with our circulatory systems – the vast network of blood vessels in our body. These kinds of problems, called vascular disease or “hardening of the arteries,” take many forms – high blood pressure, heart disease, high cholesterol, and diabetes to name a few. And one thing they have in common is they can all lead to complications with the circulation of blood in our blood vessels. Vascular surgeons are specially trained to perform procedures that treat these complications using the latest minimally invasive techniques as well as the traditional “open” methods
White Plains Hospital offers a state-of-the-art vascular testing program to assess each patient’s individual needs. 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 a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm.
Our expert vascular surgeons will work with you and the rest of our expert medical team to help you make the treatment choice that’s right for you or your loved one.
