surgeonSaving Lives and Limbs

Vascular disorders could result in fatal or disabling strokes, or aneurysms.

Limb amputation can be a major complication for patients who have diabetes, peripheral artery disease, kidney problems or another complex condition that impairs circulation. The staff works to treat vascular disorders and help prevent such amputations.

Minimally Invasive Techniques

As part of the treatment process, doctors may perform minimally invasive catheter-based procedures, and use balloons, stents or other devices to restore blood flow to the legs. Minimally invasive procedures are not the right choice for every patient, so in some cases, surgeons may need to perform traditional surgery to bypass blockages in the legs.

Bypass Surgery

Bypass surgery in the leg is very similar to coronary artery bypass surgery. Doctors typically take a healthy section of a patient's blood vessel, called a graft, from a different part of his or her body, and connect the healthy blood vessel to above and below the blockage. Blood then flows through the healthy vessel, bypassing the blocked area.
