Vascular Center Procedures

Upper and Lower extremity revascularization - is indicated in patients with severe symptoms of PVD and limb threatening conditions such as gangrene and non-healing ulcers. Treatment options may include surgical bypass and non-surgical catheter based interventions, such as angioplasty and stent placement. Goal of therapy is to relieve disabling symptoms and prevent leg amputations.

Carotid endarterectomy - Surgical procedure to reduce the risk of stroke. Performed when the carotid artery in the neck is narrowed by plaque or when there have been mini strokes. During surgery, the artery is opened, the cholesterol plaque lining the vessel is scraped out, and the artery is repaired.

Visceral and mesenteric bypasses - are performed in patients with occlusions and diseases involving the circulation to the intestines, kidneys or other organs of the abdomen.

Hemodialysis access surgery - consists of creation of an arteriovenous fistula or placement of a prosthetic graft, typically in the arm, to allow for long term hemodialysis access.

Venous disease treatment - involves diagnostic tests and therapies aimed at the treatment of venous insufficiency which may be responsible for symptomatic varicose veins or venous stasis ulcers.
