The Heart Hospital of New Mexico at Lovelace Medical Center provides comprehensive vascular disease treatments for patients with conditions affecting the veins and arteries. Vascular surgeons specialize in treating the arteries, veins, and lymphatics extending to all areas of the body, with the exception of the brain and the heart. Our vascular surgeons perform a variety of minimally invasive (endovascular) therapies, ranging from balloon angioplasty to endovascular aortic repair. Whether you need peripheral artery disease (PAD) care or treatment for a blood clot, the team at our vascular clinic is here to help.
Vascular conditions we treat
Our vascular surgeons are trained to treat all aspects of venous disease, including:
- Blood clots
- Peripheral artery disease
- Pulmonary emboli
- Varicose veins
- Venous ulceration
Our surgeons have been treating blood clots with several different modalities for over 20 years. This has earned us the distinction of being one of the top clot centers in the region. Because of the number of patients we treat, we are able to enroll patients in investigational trials.
Our surgeons also provide a variety of interventional treatment options for pulmonary emboli. Pulmonary emboli is a sudden blockage of pulmonary arteries. Though it may be stressful to learn you have this condition, rest assured that our vascular surgeons are highly trained and have been providing treatments for pulmonary emboli for over 20 years.
