Artherectomy procedures are among the latest treatments for restoring blood flow.

Overview

We can remove the built-up plaque in your arteries by inserting a catheter, or thin tube, into your narrowed artery and using a spinning process to shave off the fatty matter clogging the blood vessel. Depending on the type of artherectomy we perform, plaque will be washed away in your bloodstream or caught in a chamber when the catheter is removed.
