Surgery

For most people with carotid artery disease the treatment is a surgical procedure where the obstructing plaque is carefully removed from the inside of the artery.  This operation is called carotid endarterectomy.  A small incision over the affected artery on the side of the neck is required.  There is surprisingly little discomfort and most people may be discharged home in 24 to 48 hours.
