Fibromuscular Dysplasia (FMD)
Fibromuscular Dysplasia, commonly called FMD, is a disease that causes one or more arteries in the body to have abnormal cell development in the artery wall. As a result, areas of narrowing (called stenosis) may occur. If enough narrowing causes a decrease in blood flow through the artery, symptoms may result.
FMD is commonly found in the arteries that supply blood to the brain and kidney. There are a number of methods that can be used to detect FMD. We have the experience and expertise to not only diagnosis FMD but also to treat it using the most up to date options available.
