Advanced Treatments Offered at FVSA

TCAR Procedure

FVSA is excited to announce that Dr. Alexander Tretinyak and Dr. Jason Le are among the first providers in the area to receive certification and perform the TCAR (TransCarotid Artery Revascularization) procedure for the treatment of carotid artery disease. This minimally invasive procedure helps reduce the chance of stroke by removing plaque build-up from the two main arteries in the neck that supply blood to the brain. It temporarily reverses blood flow during the procedure so any small pieces of plaque that may break off are diverted away from the brain. Compared to other treatments for carotid artery disease, TCAR involves just a small incision, has fewer complications and leads to faster patient recovery times.

VenaSeal™ Treatment

Dr. Tretinyak also performs the VenaSeal™ treatment. This is the first – and currently the only – treatment approved in the U.S. that safely and effectively closes diseased vein segments. Instead of traditional procedures that heat or strip the vein, VenaSeal is an adhesive system that closes it, re-routing blood through healthy veins nearby. With VenaSeal, patients don’t require multiple injections of a local anesthetic, the risk of burning or nerve injury from thermal-based procedures is eliminated and patients are able to return to normal activities much sooner.
