ENDOVASCULAR SURGERY
Endovascular Surgery involves insertion of a catheter containing medications or miniature instruments through the skin and into a blood vessel for the treatment of vascular disease.

  • Inferior Vena Cava Filters – Filter placed in the inferior vena cava for patients vulnerable to pulmonary embolism, such as those diagnosed with deep venous thrombosis.Read More
  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair – Removal of the surface layer, membrane, or fibrous cover of an organ — usually performed when the lung is covered by a thick, inelastic membrane that restricts lung expansion for breathing.Read More
GENERAL SURGERY
General Surgery is a specialty which focuses on disease of the abdomen, intestines, esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, biles ducts, thyroid and parathyroid glands, skin, breasts and hernia repair.

Laparoscopic Procedures
Laparoscopic Surgery describes operations performed through small incisions, as opposed to the larger incisions used in traditional surgical procedures. Our doctors complete 98% of procedures laparoscopically, an exceptionally low “conversion rate.”

THORACOSCOPIC PROCEDURES
Thoracoscopic Surgery refers to minimally invasive surgery of the chest cavity. This approach enables the surgeon to examine the lungs and other structures of the chest without making a large incision.

                  • Lung Resection – Removal of all or part of the lung, due to lung cancer or other lung disease.Read More
                  • Video Assisted Thoracoscopy – Removal of the surface layer, membrane, or fibrous cover of an organ — usually performed when the lung is covered by a thick, inelastic membrane that restricts lung expansion for breathing.Read More
                  • Lymphadenectomy Surgical removal of one or more groups of lymph nodes.Read More
                  • Mediastinoscopy Surgery that facilitates visualization of the middle of the chest cavity, facilitating minor surgery through very small incisions, such as removing lymph nodes from between the lungs to test for cancer or infection.Read More
                  • Thoracoscopic Lung Biopsy Minimally invasive surgical procedure to diagnose lung diseases, such as sarcoidosis or cancer Read More
                  • Infusaport Placement An infusaport is much like an IV offering entry into a vein. The infusaport is useful because while inserted a patient can generally live life as usual with the infusaport in Read More
VASCULAR PROCEDURES

Vascular Surgery involves the surgical and conventional treatment of disease of the arteries and veins.  Our surgeons are trained in the diagnosis and management of disease affecting all parts of the vascular system with the exception of the heart and brain.

  • Aorto Bi-Femoral Bypass Surgery used to bypass diseased large blood vessel0 in the abdomen and groin.Read More
  • Dialysis Access – Surgical creation of an access portal by joining an artery to a vein (fistula) or by graft (man-made tube connecting an artery to the vein).Read More
  • Lower Extremity Arterial Bypass – Removal of the surface layer, membrane, or fibrous cover of an organ — usually performed when the lung is covered by a thick, inelastic membrane that restricts lung expansion for breathing.Read More
  • Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) – Peripheral Arterial Disease is a disease in which plaque builds up in the arteries that carry blood to the head, organs and limbs.  Read More
