Recovery & Support for Renal Artery Stenosis
At NYU Langone, our specialists provide support after treatment for renal artery stenosis. Your doctor continues to monitor you for atherosclerosis, a buildup of plaque in the arteries that causes the condition. This may include blood tests and regular ultrasound testing.
If you’ve had surgery for renal artery stenosis, you may need rehabilitation to recover successfully. A team of specialists at NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation, including physiatrists—doctors who specialize in rehabilitation medicine—and physical therapists, provides inpatient and outpatient services.
At NYU Langone, registered dietitians and nutritionists can design a diet to help you lower blood pressure, improve your cholesterol levels, reach and maintain a healthy weight, and manage diabetes to help prevent a recurrence of renal artery stenosis.
