Vascular Surgery

Our board certified vascular surgeons diagnose and treat diseases that affect your blood vessels, such as narrowing or blockage of the arteries in your arms or legs. This is called peripheral vascular disease or peripheral artery disease and means you have poor blood flow and may need a procedure such as angioplasty.
