What Can You Expect After Your Balloon Angioplasty? New York, NY

What Can You Expect After Your Balloon Angioplasty?

Balloon Angioplasty and Stents

Balloon Angioplasty is a minimally invasive procedure designed to open and improve blood flow in the body’s arteries and veins; balloon angioplasty has become a very popular treatment method for a variety of vascular conditions. If your doctor recommends a Balloon Angioplasty there are some things you can expect as you recover from the procedure.

You should expect to spend some time in the hospital after your procedure. You will need adequate time to recover. At first you may feel groggy from the sedative. Your doctor will let you know when you can walk. Typically patients are able to walk within 2 to 6 hours following the procedure. Patients usually stay overnight and return home the day after the procedure. Some may even go home the same day. The amount of time that you stay in the hospital will depend on if there were any difficulties during the procedure, and how well the catheter insertion site is healing.

If your procedure is relatively normal, you are typically able to return to work and normal routines after about a week. If your job requires heavy labor, you will need to wait longer. You will need to wait for your doctor to give you the “go ahead” before entering back into your normal routine.

After your procedure it’s important to have the expectation that you will need to make adjustments to you life and schedule for a period of time. If you have family and friends around to help you to heal and recover, your recovery can go more quickly. Rest is important.

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.

Howard L.

Dr. Benvenisty is the most caring physician that I know. He is brilliant, highly ethical and trustworthy. His knowledge extends well beyond his specialty. He makes referrals to the best possible physicians. I know Dr. Benvenisty for 25 years and have complete confidence in him.
