Endovascular Revascularization

If you or someone you care about is suffering from lower extremity peripheral artery disease (PAD), there is a minimally invasive procedure called endovascular revascularization that can relieve your symptoms within 1 to 2 hours.

What Does Endovascular Revascularization Involve?

Performed under local anesthesia, Jefferson vascular and endovascular surgeons perform endovascular revascularization to clear blockages in the arteries and remove the plaque that is causing decreased blood flow. This alleviates the pain and stops the tissue decay/loss associated with lower extremity PAD.

This procedure is suitable for nonsurgical candidates, is faster than a bypass and results in faster recovery, with most people feeling better instantly and able to resume all normal activities within a few days.
