Our Approach to Care
Multi-disciplinary, Innovative Comprehensive Care
Whenever possible, we treat vascular disorders using medication, lifestyle changes, or other non-surgical treatments. When these approaches are not enough, we offer the latest endovascular therapies and open vascular surgery. We individualize treatment choices to best serve the patient, seamless communication among our team members result in comprehensive care that put patients on the road to better health.
- Vein Care: The dedicated vascular surgeons in our vein program use the latest technology to offer patients the highest quality vein care available. Treatment of vein problems may require simple outpatient procedures including thermal or nonthermal ablation of the underlying veins, injections or removal of the veins – all of which can improve symptoms and leg appearance.
- Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) Care: Peripheral artery disease is extremely common – and potentially dangerous if left untreated. Patients with peripheral artery disease require early diagnosis and treatment which is important not only to improve circulation in the leg, but also to prolong life and prevent critical limb ischemia and the need for amputation. We offer comprehensive diagnostic and treatment options — from preventative screenings to complex surgeries.
- Aortic Disease Care: Working closely with our colleagues in cardiac surgery, our Aortic Center offers the least invasive techniques for aneurysms and other aortic conditions.
- Diabetes-related Vascular Care: Whether it’s caring for leg and foot issues, wound care, dealing with vascular kidney problems, or simply helping with ports and access for dialysis, our team works with patients living with diabetes to ensure they have personalized attention.
Vascular procedures now often involve only brief periods in an operating room followed by surprisingly quick periods of at-home recovery These procedures, however, are still operations and patients should carefully weigh all of their treatment options before deciding upon a course of care. Vascular surgeons at NewYork-Presbyterian encourage patients to talk with them when evaluating their treatment options.
