Monday, March 29, 2021
Zanesville, Ohio (March 29, 2021) – Genesis HealthCare System’s Vascular Surgery team recently performed its 25th TransCarotid Artery Revascularization (TCAR) procedure. TCAR is a less-invasive method for treating carotid artery disease, where plaque builds up in one or both neck arteries and can cause strokes. Genesis surgeons began performing the procedure in October 2020.
Dr. Michael Kunstmann Talks About the Transcarotid Artery Revascularization Procedure (TCAR)
“The TCAR procedure is a great example of the advanced care and treatment we provide at Genesis. During the procedure, we reverse blood flow away from the brain temporarily to filter out plaque particles to reduce the risk of stroke,” said Michael Kunstmann, D.O., fellowship-trained and board-certified vascular surgeon.
