At Meridian Health, our physicians have access to the latest technology to diagnose and treat patients with vascular disease. Our diagnostic imaging center gives our team the ability to diagnose and treat numerous types of medical conditions by using imaging techniques to guide them as they thread narrow tubes (catheters) and other very small instruments through blood vessels and other pathways of the body to the site of a problem.
Our multi-disciplinary vascular team has the ability to conduct minimally invasive procedures to treat a wide range of clinical problems including stroke, carotid artery disease, abdominal aortic aneurysms and other peripheral vascular disorders through procedures such as diagnostic catheterizations, stenting, balloon angioplasty, and embolizations. It also means less radiation exposure for the patient, reduced recovery time without the pain of a large incision, and less visible surgical scarring.
