Carotid Artery Disease
Combining the expertise of the Jefferson Heart Institute and Comprehensive Stroke Center, our physicians use the latest diagnostic technologies to pinpoint carotid artery disease and provide you with the appropriate care to prevent stroke. Your medical team will work with you to manage your condition through lifestyle changes and medication therapy.
Our Comprehensive Stroke Center is one of the most advanced and acclaimed centers in the U.S. for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and research of stroke. It is the largest facility dedicated to the care of acute stroke in the Delaware Valley and has Advanced Certification from the Joint Commission in Stroke (Primary Stroke Center).
If necessary, Jefferson physicians are equipped to open blocked carotid arteries through minimally invasive stenting procedures or carotid endarterectomy, a surgical procedure to remove plaque and clots.
