Vascular Care

A premier clinical service for head-to-toe treatment of vascular disease.

We treat and repair all types of carotid, aortic and lower-extremity vessel conditions.

The vascular system is your body’s network of blood vessels – the arteries, veins and capillaries that carry blood to and from your heart. When that blood flow is blocked or otherwise interrupted, it can lead to a host of symptoms and conditions that can be inconvenient and nagging, or debilitating and dangerous. The vascular and endovascular specialists at Lourdes Cardiology offer leading-edge treatment for a range of vascular problems, including peripheral artery disease (PAD), abdominal aortic aneurysm, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), venous reflux disease and carotid artery disease, and such conditions as varicose and spider veins (which can have both function and cosmetic effects).  

With high-quality diagnostic services at locations across South Jersey, we detect and evaluate risk, conditions and symptoms of vessel disease or abnormality. And with our advanced interventions - from minimally invasive, catheter-based procedures to complex cardiothoracic surgery - we help to significantly improve your health, longevity and quality of life.

Some of the procedures we commonly perform include:

ANGIOPLASTY
Inflating a catheter-inserted balloon to widen a narrowed or blocked vessel

ATHERECTOMY 
A procedure to remove plaque buildup from a vessel wall

ENDARTERECTOMY
A surgical procedure to remove plaque buildup in an artery

LASER/RADIOFREQUENCY ABLATION 
A minimally invasive catheter-based treatment using light or sound waves to remove vessel abnormalities or obstructions, often employed for venous reflex and varicose veins using light or sound waves

PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL BYPASS SURGERY
Bypasses blocked arteries with blood vessels taken from another part of the body or with a synthetic graft

SCLEROTHERAPY
An injection of a solution directly into a spider vein or varicose vein causing it to fade from view

STENTING
The insertion of small expandable tubes, or stents, to support narrow or weakened arteries

SURGERY FOR AORTIC ANEURYSM
Minimally invasive stented or open repair of a dilated or damaged aorta

THROMBECTOMY
A surgical procedure to remove a blood clot in an artery or vein
