Henry Ford Allegiance Vascular Health
Jackson, MI 49201
Vascular disease, a blood vessel disorder that affects the arteries and veins, is a serious health issue that is responsible for more deaths in the United States than all cancers combined. Henry Ford Allegiance Vascular Health focuses on education, prevention and the early detection of vascular diseases, and provides a variety of minimally invasive treatment options as well as complex surgical procedures.
The vascular (circulatory) system includes the arteries and veins that carry blood from the heart to all other parts of the body and back to the heart. The certified technologists at Henry Ford Allegiance Vascular Laboratory perform tests to identify problems related to the vascular system. The tests are available free of charge at the Vascular Laboratory and at regularly scheduled events throughout Jackson and its surrounding areas.
Vascular testing involves the use of ultrasound to explore arteries and veins. The non-invasive, pain-free testing takes about 20 minutes and does not require any type of anesthetic. Experienced surgeons at Henry Ford Allegiance Vascular Healthperform a variety of minimally invasive procedures to address these issues and others, including varicose veins, peripheral vascular disease, peripheral arterial disease, deep vein thrombosis (blood clots) and venous reflux disease.
