Vascular surgeons offer a wide range of services. No vascular condition is simple in the eyes of the patient and the vascular surgery group is dedicated to compassionate and comprehensive care for patients. From varicose veins to aortic aneurysms, from outpatient vascular testing to inpatient life or limb saving procedures, each patient is treated individually and cared for according to their needs.
Vascular surgeons partner with patients to develop appropriate treatment plans. They take the time to listen to patients and help translate medical terms in a way that makes it easier to understand choices.
Ask your primary care provider if a vascular surgery referral is appropriate for you if:
- Are older than 55 years old, smoke, have diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia or other risk factors (you may need to be screened for vascular conditions)
- Are on dialysis
- Had a stroke, TIA or known carotid stenosis
- Have a non-healing wound or extremity discoloration (blue, pale or redness)
- Have a diabetic foot

- Have a history of aneurysm (thoracic, abdominal, visceral or peripheral)

- Losing weight and have abdominal pain after eating
