Sometimes a blood clot develops in a deep vein, usually in the legs. Treatment of this condition relies on medication and compression to prevent the clot from loosening and lodging somewhere life-threatening, specifically in the lungs.

Vascular tumors form through the cells that make blood vessels or lymph vessels. They may be benign or malignant and can occur anywhere in the body, on the skin, in the tissues below the skin, or in an organ.
Using a combination of minimally invasive techniques, our expert doctors in vascular surgery and interventional radiology create comprehensive and advanced solutions for a wide variety of conditions. Below is a list of common vascular concerns and the minimally invasive procedures we can use to address them.
Arterial and Venous Blockages
Aneurysms and Dissections
Varicoceles and Pelvic Congestion
Dialysis or Infection Treatment
Tunneled catheter placement
Catheter-based therapy for access maintenance
Varicose Veins and Spider Veins
Some vascular problems are more complex than others. For the times when a minimally invasive approach will not be sufficient to treat a patient’s condition, our vascular surgeons are trained in advanced surgical techniques to provide the most effective treatment available. Surgeries performed often at our facilities include the following:
The carotid arteries are the main blood vessels that carry oxygen and blood to the brain. In carotid artery disease, these arteries become narrowed, and treatment includes surgically removing plaque that builds up inside the carotid artery.
