Recovering From Your Balloon Angioplasty

Doctor with Hands in a Heart Shape

Balloon angioplasty is a minimally invasive procedure designed to open and improve your blood flow in your body’s arteries and veins. This procedure has become a popular treatment method for a variety of vascular conditions.

If it is determined that you need a balloon angioplasty, an image-guided, balloon-tipped catheter is moved into your artery or vein where it arrives at the narrowed area. When the balloon is inflated, it opens your vessel, and a stent is placed to hold it open. In the end, the balloon is deflated and removed.

Before your procedure, Dr. Benvenisty will give you instructions regarding what to eat and drink. It is typical to not eat or drink six to eight hours before your procedure. You may also need to adjust any medications you are taking and arrange for transportation home.

The recovery after an angioplasty looks different for everyone and depends on many factors. However, there are some things that you will most likely encounter. Usually, an angioplasty procedure requires an overnight stay in the hospital. During your stay, you will be monitored, and your medication will be adjusted.

Most patients can return to work or your regular activity one week after the procedure. To ensure a speedy recovery, be sure to drink plenty of water and fluids, avoid strenuous exercise, and lifting of heavy objects.

Above all, it’s vital that you follow Dr. Benvenisty’s recommendations after your surgery. He is a Board Certified General, Vascular, and Endovascular Surgeon. He will deliver you with individualized patient care in New York City. Book your appointment with him today.

Dr. Benvenisty was excellent and helped us with my husband's extensive leg swelling related to diabetes. We had another specialist who didn't help us last year. We're planning to stay with Dr. Benvenisty now! He's detailed oriented, matter-of-fact and friendly. An excellent doctor I would strongly recommend.


Dr. Benvenisty treated my mother in the ER during this time of the covid outbreak. He was a part of a fantastic team of doctors that were brought in to find out what was ailing my mother. He is first and for most experienced in many areas as my mother was diagnosed with pancreatitis. Although he transferred the surgery to another member of his team, he gave me his mobile and kept me informed of her condition/diagnosis at a time where I was unable to be with her myself because of this pandemic. His heart, compassion, understanding and bedside manner are things that I will not ever forget. He is an excellent doctor and truly a great human being.
