Atherosclerosis, arterial disease, is a condition in which plaque builds up in the arteries which carry oxygenated blood to your extremities, head, and organs. Over time these plaques can harden and enlarge. When this happens, your arteries can become severely narrowed or blocked which limits the flow of blood throughout the body.
When these arteries do become narrowed or blocked, complications can arise including: leg pain, leg and foot ulcers, cold limbs, strokes or transient ischemic attacks (TIA). These can be medical emergencies requiring immediate treatment.
Smoking, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, lack of exercise and family history are a few of the major risk factors for developing arterial disease.
At Comprehensive Interventional Care Centers, our medical team includes leading experts in arterial disease diagnosis and treatment. If you are at risk of arterial disease, or have symptoms, your doctor will recommend that you are tested for the disease and related complications. If you are diagnosed with arterial disease, your doctor will use nonsurgical lifestyle modifications and medications combined with minimally invasive methods to treat the disease. This includes a focus on conservative treatments like exercise, diet, and medications.
At Comprehensive Interventional Care Centers, our dedicated team of top cardiovascular specialists includes experts in arterial disease. We are devoted to providing you with superior treatment and management of arterial disease, starting the first time you walk through our doors.
As a new patient referred to CiC Centers, our expert medical staff will first meet with you for an initial arterial disease consultation and examination. We will take your weight, height, and vital signs, obtain your complete medical history and basic information, and perform a physical exam.
Our goal is to provide you with the best possible care, while advancing the understanding and prevention of arterial disease. We appreciate the importance of making your initial consult and exam a positive experience, and the first step toward better health.
At Comprehensive Interventional Care Centers, medical management of arterial disease centers around the treatment of plaque buildup and hardening of the arteries. Our physician experts in arterial disease will devise a management plan to meet your signs, symptoms, and health goals. This may include treatment for:
Arterial disease often requires more than lifestyle changes and medications to effectively relieve symptoms. If your condition does not respond to conservative treatment, your doctor may recommend additional heart disease treatment options.
At Comprehensive Interventional Care Centers, advanced treatment of arterial disease is reserved for patients who are symptomatic, or are at a high risk of serious problems including stroke, gangrene, or loss of organ function.
Our arterial disease experts use interventions that are nonsurgical and minimally invasive. These include catheterization, radial artery approach catheterization, angioplasty, and stenting. These therapies are used to effectively treat a range of arterial conditions including:

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is a common circulatory problem. The arteries that carry blood to your head, organs, and limbs become narrowed by the buildup of arterial plaque (atherosclerosis), reducing blood flow.
The two most important factors in preventing heart disease are remarkably simple: 1) have a thorough heart health screening to identify your risk factors, and 2) have regular follow-up screenings, in accord with those risk factors.
At CiC we believe that clinical excellence, commitment to service, and a modern approach make for a truly great experience
