Vascular and Endovascular Surgery

A healthy vascular system, also called the circulatory system, is essential for overall good health. Arteries and veins circulate blood throughout the body to supply oxygen and nutrients that organs need to function properly. For many, including older people, people with diabetes, and smokers, their vascular system is compromised. This can lead to increased risk for developing a stroke, an aneurysm (a weak spot on the wall of a blood vessel characterized by bulging), carotid artery disease, varicose veins, limb loss, and even life-threatening vascular diseases.

Mount Sinai Morningside’s expert vascular and endovascular surgeons successfully treat a wide range of conditions related to blood vessels, including:

  • Carotid artery disease, which can lead to stroke
  •  Aneurysmal arterial disease, like thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysms that can lead to rupture
  • Poor circulation such as in mesenteric occlusive disease
  • Lower extremity arterial occlusive disease
  • Venous disease

Our surgeons perform life-saving and limb-saving surgery and advanced minimally invasive treatment of leg pain and leg ulcers, in addition to procedures for dialysis access. They work with our team of amputation prevention and limb salvage specialists for the best possible outcomes.

More than 55 percent of vascular surgeries are minimally invasive, using smaller incisions and requiring less recovery time than open surgery. Patients typically go home the same day, or if a hospital stay is required, it’s usually overnight.

Our board certified, fellowship-trained doctors offer compassionate, personalized care that is unique to every individual. When possible, patients are treated medically without any intervention or surgery.

Why Mount Sinai Morningside?

Our state-of-the-art hybrid operating room, featuring the latest technologically advanced equipment, allows our team of surgeons, radiologists, and other specialists to perform a wide range of simple and complex procedures. With access to the most advanced digital imaging, including PET scanners, high resolution CT and fusion imaging, real-time images of blood vessels can be created to diagnose and repair damaged arteries and veins.

These highly sensitive digital imaging devices emit low radiation, making them powerful, but safe, for patients. They are among the most sophisticated in the tristate area and provide a magnified, 3D view of veins and arteries, allowing physicians to precisely target their procedures and safely implant devices within a half millimeter. The combination of detailed imaging, advanced operating room technology, and skilled medical experts provides the best likelihood for successful treatment and recovery.

Eligible patients have the opportunity to enroll in clinical trials of emerging procedures, devices, therapies, and medications conducted by Mount Sinai Morningside doctors to advance treatment of vascular conditions. Participants in clinical trials have access to the latest techniques and medications and receive care from the top doctors in the field who maintain the highest levels of patient safety.
