This advanced area of surgery, requires additional specialized training, focusing on disorders of the circulating system. We provide a significant number of patients with care for aneurysms of the abdominal aorta, and in increasing numbers, for those with venous disease who require dialysis. Our staff also provides vascular access for individuals with end-stage renal disease. Many patients are also treated for cerebrovascular disease to reduce the risk of stroke.

Our physicians specialize in the diagnosis and management of carotid artery disease, aortic aneurysms, and poor circulation to the legs and the abdominal organs.
