Lismore, Australia -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/10/2014 -- Dr. Deepak Williams of North Coast Vascular had the opportunity to be one of the first surgeons in the new Hybrid Theatre at St. Vincent’s Private Hospital in Lismore during its official dedication. The new development features state-of-the-art technology and enables surgeons of Williams’ caliber to collaborate easily with other specialists for an enhanced level of patient care.
The vascular and endovascular surgeon at North Coast Vascular has an impressive list of credits and has studied in venues around the world to bring a superior level of vascular and venous care to his patients. He specializes in minimally invasive surgical techniques to treat an extensive array of vascular problems.
Major and minor veins transfer oxygen rich blood throughout the body, but they can become blogged and inhibit proper circulation leading to dysfunction and even death. The practice treats patients for peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and carotid artery disease (CAD), along with aneurysms, blood clots, ulcerations and venous disease.
The type of treatment depends on the severity of the problem and many individuals don’t even realize they’re at risk. Some conditions can be addressed with lifestyle changes and careful monitoring. Severe cases of PAD and CAD require removal of plaque buildup, widening the arteries or bypass surgery to prevent results that include dysfunction, paralysis and mini-strokes.
Aneurysms are bulges in the wall of an artery. They often display no symptoms, but cause internal bleeding and rapid death if they burst. Aneurysms don’t go away or disappear without treatment and the clinic offers specialized surgical techniques to effect repairs.
Varicose veins are much more than unsightly blemishes on the legs. They’re a clear indication that the leg veins aren’t working properly. The condition is more prevalent in women, but men can also have the disease. The practice can repair the problem with minimally invasive techniques to seal the vein walls and stop leakage.
Along with the spider veins that indicate venous disease, ulcerations can occur. They’re open wounds that don’t heal. Surgery is required to remove dead tissue and skin grafts may be needed to complete repairs. Arterial ulcerations are more severe and can be treated through removal of plaque. In the most serious cases, amputation may be the only option.
Williams had the distinction of being the first vascular surgeon in the Lismore region and his expertise is reflected in being one of the first at Hybrid Theatre. North Coast Vascular is a leader in non-invasive treatments for vascular dysfunction. Williams provides the delicate and intricate surgical procedures needed to repair and correct an extensive array of conditions and diseases.
The practice maintains offices in Lismore, Ballia, Tweed Heads and Maclean. Dr. Williams can be reached by phone at 1300 278 379. For more information, visit the vascular surgeon online at North Coast Vascular.
