Delray Medical Center announced that Dr. Joseph Ricotta has successfully performed his 300th Transcarotid Artery Revascularization procedure. Used to treat carotid artery disease, the TCAR procedure allows for a safer and more efficient approach to removing plaque and restoring normal blood flow to the brain.

Dr. Ricotta serves as the national medical director of vascular surgery and endovascular therapy for Tenet Healthcare, and he is a professor of surgery and program director of the vascular surgery fellowship at Florida Atlantic University School of Medicine.
