Our vascular surgery program is one of the highest volume programs in New York State. It provides comprehensive vascular disease care that includes traditional vascular procedures as well as state-of-the-art endovascular procedures. Vascular surgery encompasses the treatment of a diverse set of pathologic conditions affecting the body's vascular system – the network of blood vessels that circulates blood to and from the heart and lungs.
We provide comprehensive care for all types of vascular diseases in patients of all ages, and treat the full range of vascular disorders including diseases of the carotid, aortic, renal, mesenteric and lower extremity circulation. Calling on cutting-edge therapies, our world-renowned physicians have been able to prevent strokes and amputations and have pioneered minimally invasive procedures for the treatment of vascular disorders.
Our commitment to providing outstanding clinical care is complemented by a dedication to the advancement of vascular disease treatment through research. We have studied treatments in terms of efficacy, safety, and long-term durability, at our own hospital and at centers across the country. The results substantiate that minimally invasive vascular procedures do have the potential to reduce morbidity and mortality rates while successfully treating the disease.
In addition, we emphasize early detection of vascular disease, which can reduce the risk of serious complications. Our faculty members were instrumental in facilitating the passage of legislation requiring Medicare coverage of ultrasound screening exams for abdominal aortic aneurysm. Our Non-invasive Vascular Laboratory performs testing for the detection of vascular disease of the carotid arteries, aorta and lower extremities.
We are pleased to be able to offer patients access to the most advanced treatments available in the world today. Our mission is to continue to be on the forefront of developing innovative techniques and improving treatment for vascular disease.
