Vascular disease

Vascular disease is a broad term used to describe conditions and diseases affecting the arteries and veins. These blood vessels are vital for blood circulation throughout the body, and problems with vascular function may result in adverse health effects.

  • Arteriovenous fistula and malformation
  • Blood clots
  • Carotid artery disease
  • Critical limb ischemia
  • Deep vein occlusions and thrombosis
  • Fibromuscular dysplasia
  • Intermittent claudication
  • Intestinal ischemia
  • Lymphedema complications
  • Marfan syndrome
  • Median arcuate ligament syndrome
  • Pelvic congestion syndrome
  • Peripheral arterial disease (PAD)
  • Peripheral venous disease (PVD)
  • Popliteal artery aneurysm
  • Renal aneurysms and stenosis
  • Takayasu's arteritis
  • Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS)
  • Thrombophlebitis
  • Varicocele
  • Varicose veins
  • Vascular and venous complications
  • Vertebral artery disease

Vascular care services we provide

Our vascular doctors tailor treatment based on the severity of your condition, whether it requires surgery or simply medications and lifestyle modification.

Our vascular screening and diagnostic services

Diagnosing vascular diseases is critical because they often do not have apparent symptoms. This makes it difficult to know when you might need to see a vascular specialist.

Our goal is to inform you of any issues you may be experiencing, as well as the preventive steps you can take to reduce your risk of developing a vascular disease. To do this, we diagnose vascular conditions using a wide range of tests, including:

  • Angiography
  • Abdominal aorta ultrasound
  • Arterial ultrasound
  • Cardiac catheterization
  • Carotid artery ultrasound
  • Cerebral angiogram
  • Cerebrospinal fluid examination
  • Computerized tomography (CT) scan
  • Echocardiogram
  • Electromyography (EMG)
  • Exercise ankle-brachial index
  • Graft surveillance
  • Intraoperative duplex ultrasonography
  • Lymphangiogram
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) angiography
  • Peripheral artery ultrasound
  • Pulse volume recordings
  • Renal artery ultrasound
  • Stress tests
  • Transcutaneous oximetry
  • Vein mapping
  • Venography
  • Venous reflux testing
  • Venous ultrasound

Vascular and endovascular surgical procedures we offer

In many cases, vascular complications can be treated without large surgical incisions, which is why our vascular surgeons stress the usage of minimally invasive techniques. These techniques provide you with less pain, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery times. But, sometimes, traditional, open surgery can be a necessity.

Depending on your condition, we offer both endovascular and open-heart forms of the following surgical treatments:

  • Abdominal aortic, thoracic and thoracoabdominal aneurysm repair
  • Angioplasty
  • Aortic dissection repair
  • Carotid endarterectomy
  • Deep vein occlusion reconstruction
  • Gangrene surgery for the limbs
  • Endovenous laser therapy treatment or perforator surgery for varicose veins and venous ulcers
  • Hemodialysis access, including femoral vein fistulas
  • Peripheral artery aneurysm surgery
  • Pressure sensor implantation
  • Surgical revascularization
  • Transcervical carotid stenting
  • Treatment of carotid body and other vascular tumors
  • Treatment of thoracic outlet syndrome
  • Vascular stenting

Treating varicose veins

Sometimes referred to as "spider veins," varicose veins are a very common condition in adults, affecting twice as many women as men. Age is a leading risk factor, as you are much more susceptible to developing spider veins after you turn 50 years old. Genetic disposition also affects your chances of developing varicose veins.

Our varicose vein surgeons use a variety of laser and catheter-based techniques to effectively treat these veins. We can help you feel more confident in your skin.

Peripheral artery disease treatment programs

The American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology recommend combating PAD with a supervised walking program. We assist patients with motivation and coaching during supervised treadmill-walking exercises. These exercises are designed to improve muscle tone, function and walking distance. We also offer a PAD drug therapy program to aid in your recovery.

Some of the benefits of these recovery programs include:

  • Improved quality of life and stress management
  • Improved walking distance (endurance) in patients
  • Increased muscular endurance and strength
  • Reduced chance of hospitalization
  • Reduced risk of PAD progression and thereby reduced cardiovascular risk factors

If these measures aren't enough, or your disease is severe, we can provide the expert surgical care you need, such as stent insertions. We then combine those procedures with our other PAD services so you can heal as quickly as possible.

Diabetes and vascular disease management

Although it is not a vascular disease, diabetes often leads to vascular damage and disease. This is because high blood glucose causes hardening of the arteries, which can lead to serious cardiovascular problems, such as heart attack or stroke. To help, we provide complete diabetes care and management, in order to help you mitigate the risks of vascular disease associated with this condition.

Wound care and limb preservation programs

At our wound care centers, we provide advanced limb preservation care for patients with extremity wounds and serious traumatic injuries. This supports one of the major goals of our vascular programs, which is to reduce the need for amputation by providing early intervention if you are experiencing vascular disease.
