Treatment Options

Our WakeMed vascular experts take a comprehensive approach to treating vascular disease. We offer a variety of treatment options, from lifestyle changes and medications, to the latest catheter-based endovascular procedures and traditional surgical intervention.

Lifestyle Changes

Vascular disease may be prompted by a lack of quality nutrition; sedentarism; stress; pre-existing conditions, such as diabetes; and smoking. To help reverse disease systems, changes in lifestyle may help. We may suggest lowering cholesterol-rich and salty foods, developing an exercise regimen, reducing stress at work and at home, gaining control of existing conditions contributing to vascular disease progression and smoking cessation.
