If i had Surgery for Carotid endarterectomy could they be done together (as both 50% Occluded)by an experienced Surgeon with high volumes procedures?

In brief: First do you need it

First for 76 yr old with no symptoms like TIA 50% occlusion may not be an indication .
If indicated the procedure is done one side at a time. Best advise you will get is from your ' experienced surgeon with high volumes ' Speak to the surgeon .
