The highly skilled surgeons and team within the Section of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery direct both the medical and surgical care of patients with diseases of the arteries and veins. Tremendous advances in the last decade have resulted in several new techniques to treat vascular disease, which is a common cause of death and disability. Our team is at the forefront of innovations that include minimally invasive options for limb salvage, prevention of stroke and the repair of aortic aneurysms.

Our vascular surgeons are experts at determining and providing the best treatment options available, including endovascular therapy and traditional operative procedures. We offer the entire spectrum of therapeutic options while providing personal involvement in all aspects of patient care, from diagnosis to treatment. A comprehensive array of patient services enables us to successfully manage nearly every patient condition.
We diagnose and treat the following conditions:

 Abdominal aneurysm Diabetic problems Pulmonary embolism
Aortoiliac disease Hyperlipidemia Renovascular conditions
 Arm Artery disease Lymphedema Thoracic aortic aneurysm
 Carotid artery disease, stroke, transient ischemic attacks (TIAs)  Mesenteric ischemia Thoracic outlet syndrome
Claudication Peripheral aneurysm Varicose veins
Deep vein thrombosis Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) Venous insufficiency

Our surgeons play an integral role in the outpatient dedicated Vascular Lab at the GHSU Cardiovascular Center, a state-of-the-art facility offering experienced vascular and cardiac care via 12 exam rooms and six specialty diagnostic areas.

The Vascular surgery team is also actively engaged in basic science research in order to further understand these disorders and improve patient care. Research interests include developing new modalities for treatment of complex aneurysms and diabetic limb salvage. Other areas include the treatment of blood clots and arteriosclerosis through medical therapy, minimally invasive catheter procedures and surgical reconstruction

The section also collaborates with the vascular surgery faculty in Charlie Norwood VA Medical center in the treatment of complex vascular conditions, resident education and research.
