Marquette General Physician one of the first in Upper Peninsula to treat patients using the Diamondback 360 device.
Interventional Radiologist Dr. Michael Ouimette, of the Interventional & Vascular Institute of Northern Michigan and on staff at Marquette General Health System, is one of the first physicians in the Upper Peninsula improving circulation in patients using a minimally invasive plaque-busting device. Called the Diamondback 360 Orbital Atherectomy System, the device helps those suffering from Peripheral Arterial Disease.
Vaporizing Blood Vessel Obstructions
For patients with below the knee occlusions resulting from peripheral vascular occlusive disease (PVOD), treatment options have been disappointing and often lead to limb amputation. The most severe form of peripheral vascular occlusive disease is called critical limb ischemia and often occurs in patients with diabetes mellitus.
