Expert Care for Common Vascular Conditions

Get complete care for:

Abdominal aortic aneurysm: A slow enlargement of your aorta. Surgery can fix it if it grows too fast or is too large.

Carotid artery disease: Plaque builds up in your carotid arteries, the vessels in your neck. Blood clots can form and travel into the brain, causing a stroke. It can be treated with blood thinning medication. If the arteries are too narrow, then surgery can clear and reopen the arteries.

Hyperhidrosis: A condition that causes excessive sweating in the underarms, hands, feet or face. The only long-term solution is surgery, although there are many short-term treatments available.

Peripheral arterial disease: Narrow blood vessels in your legs cause reduced blood flow and leg pain. It can be treated with medication or endovascular surgery. This surgery involves inflating a balloon inside the narrow artery. Sometimes surgeons insert and leave a stent in the artery to keep it open and clear.

Thoracic outlet syndrome: A condition in which the vessels in your neck and chest area are squeezed by your collarbone or ribs. It is treated with physical therapy and medication. There are rare cases where patients need surgery to relieve the compression.

Varicose and spider veins: A common condition where swollen and unsightly veins show up in your legs and feet. You can correct these veins with compression stockings, exercise or surgery.

Limb preservation and non-healing wounds: Damaged blood vessels sometimes make it harder for wounds to heal. If left untreated, patients may lose the wounded limb. Sanford’s vascular experts perform endovascular surgery to repair damaged vessels or bypass the obstructed veins altogether.

Pulmonary embolism: Occurs when a blood clot blocks one or more arteries in your lungs. The blood clot needs to be broken up promptly by blood thinners and drugs or through surgery.

Deep vein thrombosis: A condition in which a blood clot develops in a deep vein. It is a serious ailment, as the clot can break off and travel to the lungs. It is treated using compression stockings and blood thinners.
