The surgeons at the Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery offer a full range of minimally invasive endovascular procedures and open surgery options to patients suffering from vascular disease. Watch our videos on various topics to learn more.

Carotid Artery Disease: Carotid Endarterectomy (CEA)

This surgical procedure is performed to remove plaque from the carotid arteries that supply oxygen to the brain. Plaque is a build-up of cholesterol, calcium and other fibrous tissues that can form in a blood vessel and prevent the proper flow of blood. Severe plaque in the carotid arteries can cause a major stroke.

Varicose and Spider Veins: Endovenous Laser Therapy

This minimally-invasive outpatient procedure, which takes less than an 45 minutes to perform, uses laser light to shrink and close varicose veins. The laser is inserted into the target veins through a catheter, leaving surrounding tissues unaffected.

Varicose and Spider Veins: Sclerotherapy

This non-invasive, outpatient procedure uses a mild chemical solution, called a sclerosant, to treat spider veins and varicose veins. In some cases, ultrasound may be used to guide the injection.
