Common vascular surgical diagnosis and treatment includes:
Carotid Disease Treatment
Carotid disease is a progressive disorder that requires close review and follow-up. The condition can lead to stroke if not managed appropriately. Patient management is a collaboration of the surgeon, patient and personal physician to ensure timely surgical intervention.
Peripheral Vascular Disease Treatment
Comprehensive management for patients with peripheral vascular disease, including thoracic, subclavian, portal, mesenteric, renal, aortoiliac, femoropopliteal and distal occlusive disease. The philosophy is to try aggressive, non-surgical treatment before more invasive interventions are necessary.
The surgeons closely follow aneurysm patients, performing surgical intervention when warranted. Surgeons also commonly handle thoracic abdominal aneurysms.
Venous Disease Treatment
Comprehensive treatment programs are offered for venous stasis disease and deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Other in-office procedures include minor surgeries and wound debridement. Sclerotherapy treatments are also available to eliminate spider veins and ease leg discomfort.
Other Services and Procedures
Other peripheral vascular services offered include hemodialysis access, sympathectomy (which may be used to alleviate hyperhidrosis), thoracic outlet syndrome, vasculitis and vaso-spastic syndromes and arterial venous malformations. The surgeons also pursue aggressive treatment of complications related to diabetes, including the diabetic foot.
