Your treatment plan will depend on your health status and the location and size of the narrowed or bulging artery.
Neurologists may prescribe drugs to lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, prevent blood clots, treat headaches or other symptoms, and reduce your risk for serious complications.
A surgeon makes a small incision, inserts a catheter, and threads it through your circulatory system to the damaged artery. Next, a small flexible balloon is inflated, pushing against the artery walls and opening the blockage. In some cases, surgeons may recommend placing a small stent to help keep the vessel open.
In rare cases, you may need surgery to repair or replace a damaged artery. We use the most advanced and least-invasive techniques possible to ensure you receive the most effective treatment.
