Vascular Diseases in North Central Arkansas

Effective Vascular Treatments

The Baxter Regional Medical Center vascular team was formed to promote the optimal treatment of patients with vascular diseases. The goal is a multidisciplinary approach where the surgeons, endovascular doctors, nurses, physical therapists and other support staff all work together to provide high quality treatment for each patient. You can trust the skilled medical professionals at BRMC to help you get the treatment you need.

Our Medical Team

Vascular surgeons at BRMC perform specialized bypass surgeries and other operations necessary for patients with blood flow problems. Our endovascular team specialize in minimally invasive procedures such as angiograms, balloon angioplasty and the placement of stents traditionally used to treat blocked vessels. They also are trained in cutting-edge techniques such as laser and mechanical atherectomy to remove blockages.

Several vascular diseases our skilled doctors have extensive experience with include:

  • Peripheral artery disease – when plaque builds up in an artery, thereby disrupting blood flow
  • Carotid artery disease – complications with the carotid artery
  • Venous disease – complications with a valve inside a vein, leading to blood flow issues
  • Blood clots – when blood coagulates inside the body, often causing severe symptoms
  • Aortic aneurysm – abnormal bulge in a blood vessel’s wall

State-of-the-art Technology

The technology at BRMC includes the latest imaging equipment, such as a 64-slice CT scanner, 3-D MRI system and vascular ultrasound. There are 12 operating rooms and two cath lab suites.

Diseases commonly treated by the vascular team include peripheral vascular disease (poor blood flow to the legs), abdominal aortic aneurysms and renal artery stenosis (poor blood flow to the kidneys).
