The Division of Vascular Surgery was selected as one of only 50 centers in the United States and Canada to participate in the landmark North American Symptomatic Carotid Endarterectomy Trial. All members within the Division of Vascular Surgery have extensive experience and excellent outcomes in carotid artery surgery as well as complex revascularizations of the vessels arising from the aortic arch.
A multidisciplinary approach is what makes the surgical division unique. The Division of Vascular Surgery has developed a beneficial and multidisciplinary relationship with the Division of Interventional Radiology, Division of Plastic Surgery and manages the Noninvasive Vascular Laboratory. Our vascular surgeons offer a full range of less invasive and simpler treatment options for your patients with vascular problems resulting in treated patients often resuming normal activities following short hospital stays.
This division is involved in the diagnosis, evaluation and management of all types of arterial, venous and lymphatic disease exclusive of that affecting the heart and intracranial vessels. Our goal is to continue to provide state of the art treatment in order to give all patients with vascular disease, the highest quality of life possible.
Vascular surgeons have partnered with the primary care physicians in managing patients with vascular disease for more than 50 years. We look forward to working with you in caring for your patients with vascular disease.
