Endovascular Services

Advances in diagnosing and treating diseases of the circulatory or vascular system have significantly improved the health and quality of life of those who have been diagnosed with vascular disorders. However, many people don't know they have vascular problems until they experience leg pain or other symptoms, or attend one of Tanner's peripheral artery disease (PAD) screenings.

Endovascular simply means "in the vascular" system. Oxygenated blood is supplied to your body through a intricate network of blood vessels. These include arteries, which carry oxygenated blood to different parts of the body, and veins, which return oxygen-depleted blood to the heart and lungs as part of the vascular system. Problems can occur with the blood flow in this elaborate system of vessels, requiring specialized medical care.

Endovascular also refers to any surgical procedure in which a catheter containing medications or miniature instruments is inserted percutaneously into a blood vessel for the treament of vascular disease. This allows physicians to treat vascular disorders from inside the blood vessels. Although traditional open surgical methods are also used, most of today's endovascular procedures are minimally invasive — performed through a small punct6ure wound or incision — requiring less recuperation time.

Endovascular services at Tanner include:

  • Noninvasive vascular tests
  • Endovascular aortic aneurysm repair
  • Treatment for leg pain and peripheral artery disease (PAD)
  • Treatment for blood clots
  • Vascular surgery
  • Outpatient treatment for varicose veins
