In brief: Roto-rooter

The procedure you are describing is an atherectomy.
It is a minimally invasive technique designed to remove buildup from the inside of your arteries. It is often paired with balloon angioplasty and/or stenting.

In brief: Excisional atherect

Rockhawk is a device used by endovascular surgeons that can remove plaque inside of arteries through small tubes called sheaths that are inserted through the groin arteries.
This can restore blood flow to the legs without major surgery.
