Atherectomy is a key treatment option in peripheral artery disease (PAD), and our doctors prefer the laser over mechanical systems in most PAD cases. It is easier to use and eliminates the need for an embolic protection device, but it does have limitations when treating calcified lesions.
Dr. Lookman Lawal has extensive experience with this type of procedure. The procedure uses a catheter that emits high-energy ultraviolet light to unblock the artery. Dr. Lawal maneuvers the catheter through the vessel until it reaches the blockage.
The team at Southwestern Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute in El Paso, TX, are ready to set you up for testing. If you think you need laser atherectomy, please contact us t set up your consultation.
