What is an Atherectomy?
Atherectomy is a keyhole procedure for treating blocked leg arteries, where a build up of plaque is removed from arteries within the body. It is particularly used to clear blockages and restore blood flow in blocked leg arteries, which is known as “peripheral vascular disease”.
The procedure is minimally invasive, usually causing minimal discomfort and disruption to patients’ daily lives. It’s performed on the Sunshine Coast by vascular surgeon Dr Rebecca Magee.
