Advanced Vascular Surgery
For patients whose vascular condition is at a more advanced stage, minimally-invasive endovascular surgery may not be appropriate. Traditional vascular surgery is performed with a larger incision, allowing the surgeon better access to the treatment area.
Every patient referred to Deborah for a vascular condition undergoes a thorough screening to assess his or her health status and the progression of the condition. While our first priority is to address the patient’s condition with medication and/or a diet and exercise program, some patients will require surgical intervention. Our surgical teams recommend endovascular procedures whenever appropriate because they are less invasive.
Vascular surgery may be recommended for any of the following:
- Carotid endarterectomy
- Lower extremity revascularization
- Dialysis access surgery
- Distal bypass surgery of lower extremities
- Thoracic stent graft repair of thoracic aortic aneurysm
