Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy
Our Vascular Surgery Program is recognized as the regional leader in diagnosis and management of vascular disease. With five board-certified vascular surgeons and a state-of-the-art cardiovascular lab and diagnostic services, the Presbyterian/St. Luke’s vascular program excels in treating more common conditions as well as rare disorders of the vascular system.
Many of the surgeries we perform are endovascular, meaning they are minimally invasive, usually requiring less recovery time, and generally have fewer potential complications. Our number one priority is to make you and your family's experience with us as smooth and as comfortable as possible, while starting you on the path to recovery.
Common conditions we diagnose and manage:
- Acute venous thrombosis and chronic venous insufficiency
- Aortic and thoracic diseases
- Atherosclerosis in aortic and its branches
- Blockages to arms
- Carotid artery disease
- Iliac disease
- Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) - also known as peripheral vascular disease
- Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
- Venous disease including laser and therapy for varicose veins

Our treatment specialties include:
