Many of the problems that involve particularly the arteries can be treated without doing an open operation. So we don't have to cut through the skin to do them. They're done with catheters. And that's where the most exciting technology really is right now. Particularly the older patients have problems with these arteries in the central parts of their bodies. And it used to be that we'd have to open up that area, and then treat them directly. Now we can often do it just with a puncture in the skin somewhere. And then with a catheter, we can get in to where we have to and do the work from the inside, so that they can stay one or two days in the hospital and then go home instead of having a very lengthy recovery. Probably the most gratifying thing is when they come back after they've had their procedure done. And we do the follow-up exam, and they're doing well. And they've gotten over the pain that they were having, or they've gotten over the serious narrowing of the arteries that they've had and they can get on with their life.Read more
