If the heart is the city center, blood vessels are the roads leading in and out of the city. Vascular surgeons take care of the blood vessels leading into and away from the heart anywhere from the neck down. This includes blood vessels in the arms and legs. Vascular surgeons treat a wide range of conditions including:

  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm
  • Carotid artery disease
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Non-healing wounds
  • Peripheral vascular disease
  • Pulmonary embolisms
  • Varicose veins

Treatments are offered through a variety of methods, including traditional open procedures, minimally invasive procedures, and endovascular procedures. Endovascular procedures are minimally invasive and usually involve needles instead of incisions during treatment.

Vascular surgeons may offer the following procedures:

  • Dialysis access creation
  • Aortic stent replacement
  • Limb salvage
  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm repair
