What is Vascular Care?
Vascular care is a wide variety of services to address anything from leg pain to circulation problems, and specializes in treatment of venous disease, peripheral arterial disease, carotid artery stenosis and aortic aneurysm surgery.
Our surgeons believe high quality diagnostic testing is an important first step to the treatment of vascular disease. After our surgeons determine the results of diagnostic testing, they work with each patient to develop a care plan based on the patient’s individual needs.
