Vascular and Endovascular Surgery

Yale New Haven Hospital’s vascular surgeons detect and treat a wide range of vascular disorders. They use today’s most advanced technologies to provide care that seeks to bring patients back to health faster. Advances include minimally invasive treatments to prevent stroke and repair aortic aneurysms.

Our surgeons are uniquely trained and experienced to weigh available treatment options, including medical therapy, endovascular approaches and bypass surgery. By offering the entire spectrum of treatments, our physicians assure patients that they are receiving the most appropriate therapy.

Conditions we treat include:

  • Aortic diseases including aneurysms and dissections
  • Arteriovenous malformations
  • Carotid disease
  • Diabetic foot ulcers 
  • Peripheral artery disease (PAD)
  • Thoracic outlet syndrome
  • Venous disorders including spider veins, varicose veins, chronic venous insufficiency, and venous ulcers

Available treatments:

  • Carotid endarterectomy
  • Carotid stenting
  • Complex aortic reconstructions
  • Creation of dialysis access
  • Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR)
  • First rib resection for thoracic outlet syndrome
  • Lower extremity angioplasty and stent procedures
  • Lower extremity bypass surgery
  • Mesenteric revascularization
  • Microphlebectomy for varicose veins
  • Thoracic endovascular aneurysm repair (TEVAR)
  • Thoracoabdominal aneurysm repair
  • Transcarotid artery revascularization (TCAR)
  • Venous closure procedures
  • Venous stents

We offer novel treatment options for patients for whom traditional methods may have been unsuccessful, including open, vascular procedures such as carotid and femoral endarterectomies, extremity and visceral bypass grafts and repair of aneurysms of the aorta and its branches.

Research

Research and development play a significant role in the ongoing success of our vascular and endovascular surgery program. Our doctors and researchers actively study vascular disease and conduct clinical trials.
