Division of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery

The Division Of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery strives to provide comprehensive care of the patient with vascular disorders involving all parts of the body outside of the heart and brain. Using state of the art equipment and facilities, including multiple hybrid operating rooms, we are able to treat even the most complex of arterial and venous diseases. From the clinic to the operating room to the hospital and up until the point the patient is home, our team provides direct management, guidance, and oversight of the patient experience. We provide care at numerous clinic and hospital sites as well as two dedicated vein care treatment centers. We are proud to be advancing our field through our involvement in the national Vascular Quality Initiative (VQI), a live database that synthesizes data to improve the quality, safety, effectiveness and cost of vascular healthcare by collecting and exchanging information.
