We treat all types of vascular disease. There are many different types of vascular disease, but some of the most common include coronary artery disease, stroke and peripheral vascular disease.

At Southern Regional, we offer an increasing number of minimally-invasive options for treating cardiovascular disease. Cutting-edge treatment options range from angioplasty for opening blocked coronary arteries -- to utilizing our Diamondback technology for treating blocked vessels in the lower legs.

The Diamondback 360°- A Blood Vessel Breakthrough

The Diamondback 360° Orbital Atherectomy System is a new solution for treating blood vessel blockages in the lower legs, known as critical limb ischemia or peripheral vascular disease. This breakthrough is helping people with pain in their legs and feet that might not have been treatable in the past.

Here's how it works. A high-speed diamond-tip drill -- about the size of a human hair -- opens blood vessels by drilling through blockages and grinding up calcium into tiny particles that can safely pass through the body.

The Diamondback removes blockages all the way down to the toes, which most other devices can't do. For many patients, the treatment prevents the loss of toes -- or even an entire foot.
