Having a vascular disease such as carotid artery disease or peripheral vascular disease can make everyday tasks too painful to manage. Vascular surgeons at Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento, offer surgical options to improve your circulation, expertly repairing blocked or ruptured arteries and veins.
We diagnose, treat and provide patient education for a wide range of vascular diseases, including aortic aneurysms, aneurysms of the abdomen, chest and limbs, atherosclerosis, deep vein thrombosis and varicose veins.
Patients here benefit from the latest in medical technology and clinical research. Advanced technology allows surgeons to visualize the blood vessels with great clarity using angiography and other noninvasive laboratory tests.
Common procedures include angioplasty and stent placement, varicose vein stripping, carotid artery surgery and atherectomy percutaneous coronary revascularization, a minimally invasive procedure to remove plaque from coronary arteries.
