The Vascular System:

  • Minimally invasive endovascular recanalization
  • Bypass surgery (aortic, upper and lower extremities)
  • Carotid endarterectomy
  • Lumbar disk disease and anterior spinal exposure
  • Hemodialysis access creation 
  • Endovenous radiofrequency and foam ablation for venous insufficiency
  • Phlebectomy for varicose veins
  • Esthetic vein treatment with laser and sclerotherapy
  • Vein stripping and ligation
  • Open and endovascular venous thrombectomy for DVT
  • IVC filter management
  • Temporal artery biopsy
  • Vascular disease prevention (Tobacco, diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia care)
  • Comprehensive wound care with debridement
