Expertise and Innovation
The vascular-endovascular surgeons at CHI Memorial treat both common and complex problems of the vascular system. Our expert surgeons tailor your treatment plan to your specific needs and preferences. In many cases, procedures are performed using minimally invasive techniques, depending on the type and severity of your condition. Minimally invasive or noninvasive procedures may offer many advantages over traditional surgery, resulting in less pain and scaring and a shorter recovery for you.
Full-spectrum vascular care
CHI Memorial provides the full spectrum of services to diagnose and effectively treat vascular disease, or conditions that affect the blood vessels in every part of the body except for the heart and brain. After an evaluation, vascular physicians diagnose symptoms, discuss your options and develop a customized care plan. We understand that no matter how routine a treatment is for us, it’s not routine for you. That’s why we take time to answer your questions and discuss your options in detail to alleviate your concerns.
Vascular surgery focuses on the treatment of two main problems that can occur in a person’s blood vessels: narrowing that develops from the buildup of plaque or enlargement that develops from degeneration of the vessel wall and weakens it. This can occur in vessels located throughout the body including the neck, extremities, abdomen, and chest.
