Your Treatment Begins Here

There are many ways we can work to slow or stop progression of peripheral vascular disease. There are medicines that can help. We may discuss a medical plan for things you can do at home. Without treatment, peripheral vascular disease can lead to foot or leg amputation or even premature death.

With Spectrum Health experts close to home, you're in the best hands for treatment. Get started here.

Treatments We Provide

Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (Angioplasty/Stent Placement)

An angioplasty is a less invasive procedure that opens a clogged artery with a small balloon. This can be done through the wrist (radial) or the groin (femoral) artery. Typically this procedure includes the placement of stents.

Bypass Surgery

This surgery creates a bypass graft using a healthy blood vessel from another part of the body or a synthetic tube to reroute blood flow.

Carotid Endarectomy

This surgery removes plaque and clots from the carotid arteries.

Laser Ablation

This minimally-invasive procedure uses a laser to precisely target and clear blood vessel blockages.

Radiofrequency Ablation

This minimally-invasive procedure uses radio waves to heat and destroy the tissue surrounding the area of the vein.

Thrombolytic Treatment

These medicines dissolve and soften plaque and blood clots in blood vessels.

Cardiac Rehabilitation

Spectrum Health offers the area’s largest and most comprehensive cardiac rehabilitation program for patients who have recently experienced a major cardiovascular episode or treatment.
