Vascular Surgery

Vascular surgeons at Mount Sinai Medical Center are at the forefront of surgical advances to improve patient care. Pioneering new techniques in the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms, these physicians attract patients from all over the United States and the world. Our vascular surgeons apply the latest equipment, minimally invasive techniques and endovascular procedures to perform procedures in all arterial regions, including carotid and peripheral vascular locations. Additional common vascular procedures performed by these physicians include: ambulatory phlebectomy, atherectomy (removal of arterosclerosis plaque), catheter interventions, dialysis access, interventional stroke treatments, portal hypertension intervention, surgical “open” aneurysm repair, and venous procedures, including caval interruption, venous thrombectomy and thrombolysis.
