A vascular surgeon is a general surgeon with specialized training in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of problems involving the circulatory system outside of the heart.

Conditions Treated

Minimally Invasive Procedures

Whenever possible, your surgical team will recommend minimally invasive procedures that use tiny incisions. Benefits include:

  • Less risk of pain and complications
  • Smaller and less visible scars
  • Shorter recovery time

Open Surgical Procedures

Depend on your surgeons to expertly perform open, or traditional, forms of vascular surgery. Open surgeries use larger incisions than minimally invasive procedures and you may need more time to recover. Common open vascular procedures include:

  • Aneurysm repair
  • Arterial grafts
  • Carotid endarterectomy
  • Carotid stenting
  • Dialysis access
  • Percutaneous endovascular revascularization

Treatment for Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are swollen and discolored veins that usually happen in the legs. Learn more about Essentia’s vein care services and how they can help your legs look and feel better.
