The goal of P.A.D. treatment is to reopen the clogged arteries. We offer two different treatment options, both of which we perform in-office using a local anesthesia. Treatment type depends on your unique body and individual needs.
- Angioplasty and Stenting (Nonsurgical Procedure) – A catheter is used to insert a small balloon into your artery. Once placed at the clog, it’s inflated and opens the artery improving blood flow. A stent (small metal mesh tube) is placed to keep the artery open.
- Atherectomy – A special catheter is used to remove the plaque and collect it into a chamber in the tip of the catheter thereby removing or greatly reducing the blockage from the artery.
