Patients who undergo stenting often notice a decrease in swelling and discomfort in their lower extremities. They also find walking to be more comfortable.

Surgical Specialists of Ocala offers many minimally invasive treatment options to help restore your health and confidence.

We care about our patients and we are here to help!
