Stroke can happen anytime and is a leading cause of death and disability in the US. A significant number of strokes are caused by blockage in the carotid arteries in the neck. At SCC, we can screen patients who are at high risk for any blockage in the carotid arteries.

Sometimes the patients have no symptoms but have blockage of the carotid arteries. They are not as dangerous but should be evaluated by vascular surgeon. We also can give a second opinion on any vascular procedure recommended for peace of mind. If you have any symptoms of stroke, get immediate medical help.
