Carotid Artery Disease

Serious Care for Serious Disease

The narrowing of the carotid arteries is a leading cause of stroke and is especially dangerous because there are few early warning symptoms.

Geisinger’s vascular team brings decades of experience in diagnosing and treating carotid artery disease.  We use the latest and most trusted minimally invasive and open surgical treatments, including carotid artery stenting and carotid endarterectomy.
