Vascular Surgery: When your vascular system, consisting of your arteries and veins, is struck with disease; you need a surgeon that specializes in vascular surgery. These surgeries are managed through surgical reconstruction, minimally-invasive catheter procedures, and surgical reconstruction. Our surgeons are trained in the diagnostics and management of vascular system diseases.
The practice of Vascular Surgery has evolved over the past 50 years into a specialty that treats everything related to the circulation of the body. This includes peripheral artery disease or hardening of the arteries, diseases involving inflammation of the blood vessels, auto-immune disorders that have blood vessels issues, trauma, varicose veins and other venous disorders, and the use of blood vessels to help treat kidney disease through dialysis. Vascular surgeons use the latest techniques and medical therapy so the patient has the best possible outcome.
The majority of patients we see at Vascular Surgery Associates don’t require an intervention; for most patients, we can discuss their issue, recommend risk factor modification and detail a plan. This plan will work with their primary care physician and any other medical issues they may have. Only about 1 out of every 5 patients we see requires an intervention of some sort, and of those, 90% can be treated through minimally invasive techniques. The majority of these techniques can be done right in our office. We at Vascular Surgeons have the unique ability to provide all levels of treatment so the best outcome is achieved.
We have a fully equipped and technologically advanced non-invasive lab to not only assist with the diagnosis of your issue, but also provide appropriate follow up. This allows us to modify your treatment plan if there are significant changes to your vascular system. To keep track of your data, we have an advanced Electronic Medical Record System that allows your primary care physician and other specialists to have immediate access to our evaluation and treatments. Our goal at Vascular Surgery Associates is to provide the most advanced Vascular Care in the region in a comfortable and patient friendly environment for the long term health of your Vascular System.
