A tiny, balloon tipped catheter is inserted into the artery either through radial access at the wrist, near the groin, or the lower leg; depending on the area of the blockage.
The thin wire is carefully guided through the artery to the blockage, the balloon is expanded to open the artery, and Dr. Stout may decide to remove the plaque while the procedure is being done. In some instances, an arterial stent may also be inserted to keep the artery open.
Stenting procedures start the same way an angioplasty does, by inserting a tiny wire catheter into the artery through an access point of Dr. Stout’s choice.
If the stent is necessary, it is done immediately after the angioplasty. This mesh tube is flexible, and safe to leave in the artery for a long period of time to help improve blood flow in the previously blocked area.

Everyone that worked with me through this procedure was very kind and explained what all I would experience. They always made sure I was comfortable. I knew I was in the hands of a very competent staff. Dr. Haney was extremely nice and explained the procedure in great detail and always answered any questions I had. I would highly recommend the Ozark Regional Vein & Artery Center.

"Excellent care and staff"
I was experiencing growing pain in the varicose veins, and some were beginning to rupture and bleed. Received consultation from Dr. Haney and the technicians and began receiving treatments about 1 month later. after 5 or 6 treatments, i no longer have the pain or bleeding and my legs look great.

"I am so grateful for the care and accuracy that was used to treat my legs. I feel great!"
I was treated with kindness, tenderness and compassion. The doctors and staff were extremely professional but sensitive with every step of the procedures. They all even showed tenderness when I was a bit nervous. I am elated to have lovely legs again!

I have had a rather long journey through the medical system trying to find the proper treatment for bad veins. My husband and I really prayed for answers AND we found them through Dr. Haney and his competent staff. We are so thankful for all of them coming to my rescue and getting me on the track I needed to be! I would give Ozark Regional Vein & Artery Center a 10-star if that was a choice above! Highly skilled, highly knowledgeable and the best patient care I have ever had. I cannot say enough good things about my experience! IF you have varicose vein problems, please do yourself a favor and only go to someone skilled in that area, which Dr. Haney is!
