Vascular Medicine & Surgery

Vascular disease can affect the arteries and veins throughout your body, leading to potentially serious complications like heart attack, stroke, ruptured blood vessels, blood clots or kidney failure. In fact, people with vascular disease have six times greater risk for experiencing symptoms of heart disease

Vascular disease and the conditions it causes can be treated, especially when it’s detected early. CMC offers extensive screening services to help you identify potential problems and recommend treatment options so you can maintain your overall health. We also use traditional open surgery as well as cutting-edge endovascular techniques to treat vascular diseases. Our highly-trained physicians, nurses and technicians can guide you through lifestyle changes, surgical options and medicinal treatments to help you regain vascular health.

New Treatment for Carotid Artery Disease

Minimally Invasive Procedure Prevents Stroke

For CMC patient, Gerald, being the first patient to try a new procedure was an easy decision. "After everything I’ve been through with the cancer, I knew I didn’t want to have a stroke too! I’ve got two great doctors and I’ve lived an extra ten years because of them. And I’ll probably live 10 more now. I feel great.”
