Comprehensive Care for Vascular Conditions

Our team of vascular surgeons specializes in treating a variety of vascular conditions that stem from blockages in the body’s arterial system. When blockages occur, regardless of the artery, it can lead to to serious health issues. Our goal is to provide personalized care and ensure you understand your treatment options and feel supported throughout your care journey.

Abdominal Aneurysm

An abdominal aneurysm occurs when a weak section of the abdominal aorta, the largest artery that carries oxygen-rich blood from the heart, bulges or expands. Learn more.

Aortoilliac Occlusive Disease

Aortoiliac occlusive disease is a type of peripheral arterial disease where the iliac arteries, branches of the aorta (your body’s main artery) at the belly button level extending to the legs, become narrowed or blocked. Learn more.

Carotid Artery Disease

Carotid artery disease, a serious health concern due to its potential to cause stroke, involves the narrowing or blockage of the neck’s major arteries, the carotid arteries, that supply blood to the brain. Learn more.


Claudication is a condition characterized by leg pain, tiredness, or weakness during activities like walking, caused by narrowed or blocked arteries reducing blood and oxygen flow to leg muscles. Learn more.

Deep Vein Thrombosis

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a dangerous condition involving a blood clot in the deep veins of the pelvis, thigh, or calf, which can lead to a life-threatening complication known as pulmonary embolism. Learn more.

Diabetic Problems

Diabetic vascular disease involves arterial blockages, often termed “hardening of the arteries,” due to diabetes-related excessive blood glucose, leading to conditions like retinopathy, coronary artery disease, and neuropathy. Learn more.


Lymphedema is the swelling of soft tissues, usually an arm or leg, caused by the buildup of lymphatic fluid. This occurs due to damage or absence of lymph vessels or nodes, hindering fluid movement through the lymphatic system. Learn more.

Mesenteric Ischemia

Mesenteric ischemia, a condition causing severe abdominal pain, occurs when the mesenteric arteries supplying blood to the intestines narrow or become blocked. This can potentially lead to intestine tissue death due to insufficient blood flow. Learn more.

Peripheral Aneurysms

Peripheral Aneurysm is the significant expansion or bulging of a blood vessel’s weak spot, often occurring in arteries outside the aorta, such as the popliteal artery behind the knee, which can lead to nerve or vein compression, resulting in pain, numbness, or swelling. Learn more.

Peripheral Artery Disease

Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), also known as leg artery disease, happens when blocked leg arteries lead to insufficient blood and oxygen flow, causing pain or discomfort in the hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, shins, or upper feet when walking. Learn more.

Pulmonary Embolism

A pulmonary embolism, a medical emergency, is a blood clot that originates in a vein and travels to the lungs, where the it can quickly become fatal if the clot is large or occurs repeatedly. Learn more.

Renovascular Conditions

Renovascular conditions impact the renal arteries and veins. Kidney function is impaired by obstructed blood flow, leading to potential diagnoses of renal artery stenosis or renal vein thrombosis when the vessels narrow or clot. Learn more.

Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm

A thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) occurs when a weak spot bulges in the thoracic section of the aorta, the body’s largest artery, posing a serious risk of rupture that can lead to shock or death. Learn more.

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS) includes Neurogenic TOS, Venous TOS, and Arterial TOS, all caused by compression in the thoracic outlet (located behind the collarbone). TOS is characterized by symptoms in the arm and hand, such as pain, numbness, tingling, and swelling. Learn more.

Venous Insufficiency

Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI), or chronic venous disease (CVD), is when leg veins can’t efficiently return blood to the heart because of malfunctioning valves, causing blood to pool due to venous reflux. This can arise from congenital defects, changes hindering vein function, or complications from Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). Learn more.
