Vascular Disease Prevention & Care
Broward Health Physician Group offers preventative services and treatment for your vascular system, the network of veins and arteries that carries blood to your vital organs.
Vascular diseases are caused by abnormal or diseased veins, usually in the arms or legs, but can also occur in the chest abdomen or pelvis. The symptoms of vascular disease aren’t always obvious but can have serious consequences. Early diagnosis and treatment can be the key to recovery.
Broward Health Physician Group offers advanced, comprehensive services to diagnose and treat a variety of vascular conditions, including:
- Diagnostic testing
- Minimally-invasive (endovascular) surgery
- Open vascular surgery
Advanced Technology for Comprehensive Care
No matter what your condition, our team of board-certified vascular and endovascular surgeons are here to help. We use advanced diagnostic technology to detect blockages, weakened arteries and other issues that require fast, individualized care. These include:
- Carotid artery disease - occurs when the blood vessels in the neck become narrowed or blocked by plaque build-up constricting blood flow to the brain which can increase the risk of stroke. Treatment options can include lifestyle modifications, medications and minimally invasive surgery.
- Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) ) – occurs when the valves in the leg are not functioning properly causing blood to pool in the legs rather than return to the heart which can cause pain, swelling, itchiness and changes to the skin. CVI can also cause deep vein thrombosis and venous disease also known as varicose veins. Treatment options can include compression stockings, leg elevation, blood-thinning medications, injections and catheter procedures.
- Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) – occurs when the arteries become narrowed or blocked reducing blood flow, usually in the legs. Treatment options include lifestyle modification, medications and surgical procedures.
- Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) – occurs when the wall of the blood vessels become weak creating a bulge or ballooning of the artery, which can become life-threatening. Treatment options vary depending on the condition but can range from lifestyle changes to surgery.
If you require any type of procedure, it will be performed by one of our surgeons - not a radiologist like at other hospitals. That way, if a surgeon has to switch mid-procedure to open surgery, you are in experienced hands that you can trust.
