Our Vascular Surgery Program offers a complete evaluation of patients with peripheral vascular disease. This includes diagnosis of extracranial and intracranial disease, venous disease, aortic and peripheral aneurysmal disease and extremity-occlusive arterial disease.


In addition to demonstrated expertise in limb preservation, stroke prevention, aneurysmal repair and clot dissolution, we also utilize transluminal techniques in vascular reconstruction and corrective procedures for patients with chronic venous insufficiency.
