Using small incisions in the groin, our experienced surgeons can now address aneurysms of the abdomen without the need of large abdominal surgery. This technique, called an endovascular aortic repair, offers skilled surgeons enhanced positioning to expand and seal an aneurysm, preventing continued blood flow and eliminating the risk of rupture. This technique has many advantages for the patient, including less stress on the heart, less discomfort and a shorter recovery period.
Lower extremity blockages
Our vascular surgeons use the latest techniques in treating blockages of the lower extremities. Most frequently patients’ experiencing debilitating discomfort in their legs and feet can find relief when they’re occlusions are treated with stents. Our staff is skilled and experienced at treating these patients in an ambulatory setting, most frequently requiring no hospital stay.
