Dr. Alan Benvenisty, Vascular Surgeon, would like to wish everyone a very happy July 4th. It’s such a great time to look back with gratefulness and also celebrate the freedoms that we enjoy in America. During this time of great reflection and celebration there are many parties under the bright lights of fireworks in the sky happening all over the United States. We’d like to remind you to enjoy foods that help your cardiovascular system function at its optimal potential.
- Colorful fruits and vegetables

- Salmon or tuna

- Processed foods
- Refined carbohydrates
The goal of healthy eating and living is to keep the cardiovascular system healthy, strong and free from blockages. These blockages can lead to strokes. Prevention is key!
However, if you find that your carotid artery is blocked, there is a procedure that Dr. Alan Benvenisty offers to free it from blockages. Carotid Endarterectomy is performed when you have a moderate blockage or stenosis of your carotid artery and are exhibiting symptoms associated with a stroke or a mini stroke. Even if you’re not exhibiting any symptoms, if you are found to have an arterial blockage of 80%, a carotid endarterectomy may be suggested.
If you desire freedom from a blocked carotid artery, call Dr. Alan Benvensitry Vascular Surgeon today. He can diagnose and offer relief from a variety of cardiovascular blockages you may be experiencing.
