Vascular Services at Gundersen Health System uses a multidisciplinary approach to evaluate, diagnose and treat vascular diseases, such as:
When the arteries to your heart narrow, it can lead to a heart attack. When the arteries to your brain narrow, it can lead to a stroke. The same thing can happen to the arteries of your arms and legs. So if you have risk factors for vascular diseases or you've already been diagnosed with a vascular, cardiovascular or neurovascular condition, talk with your doctor about related risks you might have, and any tests or preventive measures you should take.
At Gundersen we offer options to manage your vascular conditions with medical therapies, minimally invasive techniques or surgery. Some of the procedures include:
- Compression hose, laser treatments, injections or vein stripping for varicose veins
- Procedures to open narrowed or blocked vessels
- Surgery to bypass blocked and/or damaged vessels
- Aneurysm repair
If you've been diagnosed with a vascular condition and you're anxious about choosing the right treatment, you have other health problems or you've been told surgery will be difficult or not an option, Gundersen's vascular specialists can provide you with a second opinion and peace of mind.
