Our caring, experienced experts diagnose and treat vascular diseases as well as conditions affecting the body’s system of arteries and veins. Board certified, our vascular surgeons and interventional radiologists have training in minimally invasive and other advanced surgical techniques.

Conditions we treat  

Our vascular team has decades of experience treating a wide-range of vascular conditions, including:

  • Abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysms — Condition in which a weak spot in your aorta is at risk of bursting
  • Aneurysms — Occur when a part of a blood vessel swells, causing weakening or damage to the walls of the blood vessel
  • Carotid arterial disease — Disease classified by a hardening or narrowing of the arteries in your neck that brings blood to the brain
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) — Condition in which one of the veins leading to your heart has a blood clot
  • Diabetes-related conditions — Disease in which the body is unable to produce enough insulin, which causes elevated levels of glucose to be present in the blood
  • Hyperlipidemia — Condition of having abnormally elevated levels of any or all lipids (fat-soluble molecules) or lipoproteins in the blood
  • Hypertension — Chronic condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is elevated
  • Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) — Condition in which narrowed or blocked arteries reduce the blood flow to your limbs
  • Renal artery stenosis — Narrowing of the renal artery which can often lead to renal failure if not treated
  • Small vessel disease (Raynaud’s, Buerger’s) — Condition in which the small arteries in the heart become narrowed
  • Thoracic outlet syndrome — Condition whereby symptoms (numbness in fingers, pain in shoulder and neck) are caused by compression of nerves or blood vessels in the upper chest
  • Varicose and spider veins — Raised, swollen blood vessels that twist and turn and can be seen through the skin
