Vascular disease causes circulation problems, which can start with what feels like minor symptoms – fatigue or cramps – and lead to serious health conditions like stroke. That’s why it’s so important to receive care from experienced heart specialists who can accurately diagnose and remedy your heart-related condition.
The heart experts at CPMC treat patients with a wide range of vascular diseases, including aneurysms, atherosclerosis, peripheral vascular disease (PVD) and varicose veins. We create treatment plans tailored to your specific healthcare needs, which may include adopting lifestyle changes like quitting smoking, taking prescription medications and having surgery.
Skilled and experienced surgeons at CPMC offer a variety of surgical options to improve your circulation by repairing blocked or ruptured arteries and veins. Procedures include angioplasty and stent placement, varicose vein stripping and atherectomy percutaneous coronary revascularization, a minimally invasive procedure to remove plaque from coronary arteries.
In recognition of our success in implementing a higher standard of care for heart attack treatment, CPMC received the American College of Cardiology Foundation’s NCDR® ACTION Registry®–GWTG™ Platinum Performance Achievement Award for 2012 – one of only 168 hospitals nationwide to do so.
