Vascular and Endovascular Surgery

Yale New Haven Hospital's vascular surgery team is skilled at detecting and treating a wide range of vascular disorders. They use today's most advanced technologies to treat patients in ways that bring them 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, surgical and endovascular approaches. By offering the entire spectrum of therapeutic options, our physicians assure patients that they are receiving the most appropriate therapy.

Conditions we treat include:

  • Acute venous thrombosis
  • Aortic aneurysms (abdominal, thoracic)
  • Aortiliac occlusive disease
  • Carotid artery disease
  • Critical limb ischemia
  • Diabetes vascular disease and limb salvage
  • Diseases of the aorta 
  • Dialysis graft and fistula management
  • Non-healing wounds caused by vascular disease
  • Peripheral arterial disease
  • Thoracic outlet syndrome
  • Varicose veins 
  • Vascular malformations
  • Visceral artery disease

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 and development play a dominant role in the ongoing success of our vascular and endovascular surgery program. Our doctors and researchers actively study causes, diagnosis and treatment options for vascular diseases and conduct clinical trials.
