Temple University Hospital's vascular surgeons offer a full range of services for patients with peripheral vascular disease. This includes diagnosis and treatment of aneurysms, hardened or blocked arteries, blood clots, varicose veins, and compromised blood flow to the brain, intestines and kidneys.
In addition to their demonstrated proficiency in limb preservation, aneurysm repair, and stroke and clot prevention, Temple's vascular surgeons strive to perform minimally invasive endovascular treatments whenever possible, thereby reducing pain, the length of hospital stays and the risk of infection.
Temple offers the following vascular treatments:
- Endovascular stent grafts
- Surgical aneurysm repair
- Carotid stenting
- Carotid endarterectomy
- Angioplasty and stenting
- Deep vein thrombosis treatment
- Varicose veins, chronic venous insufficiency treatment
- Surgical bypass
- Dialysis access
Your tests and treatments depend on the location, type and severity of your vascular disease. Many conditions can be improved through lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking, improving diet and increasing exercise. Certain vascular conditions can also be improved with medications to control blood pressure, cholesterol levels and the blood's ability to clot.
