Carotid Artery Disease

The most common treatment for carotid stenosis is carotid endarterectomy. Successful treatment involves good pre-operative diagnosis and work-up, good operative technique, and good peri-operative care. Dr. Zakhary provides all three of these components of care which results in excellent surgical outcomes.
