Vascular Surgery Service

Vascular Surgery Service

Our vascular surgeons - who established the University Vascular Center - provide specialized care for a wide variety of circulatory disorders. They perform reconstructive procedures for occlusive and aneurysmal diseases. They have special expertise in thoraco-abdominal surgery; surgery for stroke prevention (carotid endarterectomy and carotid stenting) and for the treatment of hypertension; lower extremity vascular reconstruction; and surgery for diabetic foot ulcers. Our surgeons have been selected to participate in national studies on stroke prevention, based on their excellent surgical results. Demonstrating our commitment to providing the latest advances in patient care, our program in minimally invasive endovascular surgery offers a scope of diagnostic and treatment options which are unique in Suffolk County.

At our new Vein Center in East Setauket, our vascular specialists provide treatment for acute deep vein thrombosis; chronic venous thrombosis; pelvic venous incompetence; varicose and spider veins; and venous ulcerations. Outpatient laser treatment of certain vascular disorders, such as varicose veins and telangiectasias (small spider-like veins), is provided there. For the evaluation and treatment of chronic leg and foot ulcers, our vascular surgeons provide comprehensive wound care management at our multidisciplinary Leg and Foot Ulcer Treatment Group, also in East Setauket.

To provide the best possible patient care, our Vascular Surgery Service uses the Non-Invasive Vascular Laboratory of University Medical Center. The Non-Invasive Vascular Laboratory houses a wide variety of state-of-the-art equipment, including Duplex scanners and transcranial Doppler units, used not only as aids in the diagnosis of circulatory disorders, but also in the follow-up of a large number of outpatients. The Non-Invasive Vascular Laboratory is complemented by an excellent special procedures division of the radiology department, which likewise has the latest in angiography equipment and CT scanners, at University Medical Center. The special procedures division provides service in all the techniques of interventional radiology, including balloon dilatation (angioplasty), invasive pressure monitoring and therapeutic embolization.

This service also directs our fully approved residency training program in vascular surgery, offering the new five-year pathway to becoming a vascular surgeon (only one of six institutions in the nation to offer it, as of 2007), plus the traditional two-year fellowship following an approved general surgery residency.

Our Surgery practice includes physicians with specialized training and a focus on the evaluation and treatment of arterial and venous disease. To find a doctor that treats patients with these conditions, please click Find a Doctor and choose the doctor that best fits your need.
