Experience in Making Excellent Surgical Decisions

Our surgeons are uniquely trained and experienced to weigh the various treatment options available, including medical therapy, as well as surgical and endovascular approaches. By offering the entire spectrum of therapeutic options, our physicians can assure patients that they are receiving the most appropriate therapy for their conditions. In this way, the patient will receive:
Better outcomes
Faster recovery times
Optimal quality of life
Improved outlooks for the long term
Our surgeons’ extensive experience managing complex aortic aneurysms as well as other rare aneurysms of the arterial branches makes us expertly qualified to manage all vascular surgical patients.
The Vascular Surgery Team collaborates with our colleagues in cardiology, internal medicine, neurology, interventional radiology, and podiatry in order to offer each patient a multidisciplinary, yet individualized, diagnostic assessment and therapeutic plan. Our unique philosophy is that only when a patient is evaluated by a health care team that can provide medical, conventional open surgical and minimally invasive endovascular therapy will that patient be guaranteed of receiving the most appropriate remedy for his or her problem. The patient is our focus.

Each year our surgeons evaluate hundereds of patients with circulatory conditions ranging from the common to the rare. Our commitment is to diagnose the patient’s problem precisely, and to provide the most effective therapy specifically tailored for that individual’s needs. Our goal is to optimize our patients’ circulatory health.
