Private Carotid Endarterectomy
Your doctor may recommend a carotid endarterectomy if you have a severe narrowing in your carotid artery due to carotid artery disease. It occurs when fatty, waxy build-up restricts blood flow to your brain. Removing this plaque causing the narrowing will improve blood flow in your carotid artery and reduce the risk of stroke.
Current Canadian and international guidelines suggest that those who suffered a TIA, non-disabling stroke and have 50-99% blockage should be offered carotid endarterectomy within 2 weeks of the incident TIA or stroke. That is not always the case, however. If you wish to get it done sooner, consider doing it privately in one of the accredited facilities in the USA. The surgery can be arranged within a week. Call us and we can help you with your private medical travel so you can focus on getting better sooner!
