Why is vascular care important?

Vascular disease is one of the leading causes of death and disability in the United States.

Vascular health affects every system in the body, meaning that for every vascular procedure — from carotid stenting and ongoing hemodialysis grafting to major arterial bypass surgery and major arterial reconstruction — your specialist, treatment and recovery process matter. That’s why choosing the team that has the most experience with the full range of minimal to complex vascular procedures sets you up for a shorter hospital stay, less scarring and a faster recovery. You can play a part in your vascular health by following these six tips for improving blood circulation:

Walk More

Stretch

Don’t Cross Your Legs

Manage Stress
