Aneurysm

Aneurysm

Most aneurysms are aymptomatic and not particularly dangerous; however, a ruptured aneurysm can be life-threatening. The physicians of ARA Health are highly trained in the most advanced techniques, able to repair aortic and arterial aneurysms to avoid risk of rupture.

Spinal Compression Fracture

Spinal Compression Fracture

When spinal bones and vertebrae become soft and weak, compression fractures can occur. They can be quite painful, causing severe back pain that comes on suddenly or worsens gradually over time. Fortunately, the neurointerventionalists at ARA Health are able to repair compression fractures and improve patients' symptoms and mobility through minimally invasive outpatient procedures.

Prostate Enlargement

Prostate Enlargement

Enlarged prostate, or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), is a condition that becomes more and more prevalent as men age. It's the most common noncancerous tumor found in men, bringing unpleasant symptoms that can affect quality of life. Surgery used to be the only option, but ARA Health is proud to offer a minimally invasive alternative that's safe and effective.
