- Provide a plan for diet / exercise
- Modify or monitor medication
Our San Jose vascular surgeons offer a number of different treatment options for vascular conditions. Learn more about some of the procedures we offer below.
Angioplasty & Stenting
This is a catheter-based procedure that is used to open up a blocked artery. It is minimally invasive and may be used prior to, with, or in place of a surgical procedure. A balloon will be inflated in the artery to push back the plaque against the wall of the artery. A stent, which is a small wire mesh tube can also be used to achieve a similar effect.
Varicose Vein Treatment
Also known as endovenous ablation, treatment is done through radiofrequency / laser energy, which is used to cauterize and close off the varicose veins. This can help relieve skin irritation, swelling, and other painful symptoms. Other treatment options include surgical removal.
Several different bypass surgeries can be performed depending on the patient’s specific condition. This surgery creates a “bypass” or detour for blood to move around narrowed or blocked arteries.
When Is the Time to See a Vascular Surgeon?

With multiple methods of repair or treatment available, it is important to discuss your vascular health with a qualified surgeon.
