Specialty Care for Your Veins and Arteries
Our vascular specialists and surgeons treat conditions that affect the
arteries and veins with state-of-the-art care through Southern Regional's
Heart & Vascular Care Center.
Heart & Vascular Care Center offers leading-edge technology, top-quality care and the warm environment
you expect from Southern Regional.
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.
