Your Vascular Health Experts

Call on our comprehensive, patient-centered, state-of-the-art vascular surgery team when you need a screening, diagnosis or treatment for a wide range of vascular disorders.

Our innovative team has extensive experience in diagnosing and providing the leading treatments for stroke prevention, aortic aneurysms, peripheral arterial disease, carotid disease, dialysis, diabetic wounds and varicose or cosmetic vein disease. Each vascular surgeon is skilled in both innovative minimally invasive and open vascular surgery techniques to offer comprehensive care close to home. Appointments can be available within 48 hours and office diagnostics are performed in a fully equipped, accredited vascular laboratory. 

Vascular Testing

Our Vascular Laboratory team specializes in non-invasive imaging for the diagnosis of vascular disease, including abdominal aorta ultrasounds, carotid ultrasounds, rental artery ultrasounds and lower extremity and upper extremity arterial exams and venous ultrasounds. We offer vascular testing services at three locations in Dover and Lee. See Diagnostic & Testing Locations

Vascular Surgery and Treatment Options

Combining the latest in endovascular technology and vascular surgery with state-of-the-art high quality imaging resources, we optimize your treatment and surgical outcomes for an array of vascular disorders.

Our vascular surgery program incorporates the most sophisticated 3-D imaging and surgical systems in the country for better patient outcomes. The superior imaging available the endovascular Hybrid operating room allows our vascular surgeons to do more minimally invasive procedures in a sterile OR environment, with increased patient safety and faster recovery.

Our highly trained providers are skilled in both open and minimally invasive techniques, including: 

Peripheral Vascular Intervention (PVI)

These minimally invasive procedures, including angioplasty, thrombectomy and embolization, remove plaque and restore the flow of blood through the artery. By using small incisions, usually in the leg or arm, doctors avoid making large surgical cuts, decreasing your pain and shortening your recovery time. 

Endovascular Therapies

These minimally invasive treatments offer an alternative to conventional surgery, especially for abdominal aortic interventions and abdominal aneurysm (AAA) repair. 

Vascular Surgery

Sometimes open surgery is the best option for patients. Our board-certified vascular surgeons are skilled in endarterectomy, peripheral bypass and open aneurysm repair when necessary to open blood vessels our reroute blood flow around blockages.  

Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT) for Varicose Veins

Even eliminating varicose veins now can be done using the minimally-invasive method of endovenous laser treatment (EVLT). A non-surgical, non-scarring treatment for varicose veins, it provides immediate relief with little to no pain, without the use of general anesthesia or need for hospitalization.

EVLT uses laser energy to target and seal problem veins, reducing or completely closing the vein, improving appearance and reducing the pain and discomfort caused by varicose veins.

Wound Care

Patients with vascular disease and poor circulation often experience chronic wounds. Our Wound Healing Institute provides expert care, including Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, to promote the healing and prevention of leg ulcers and other complications of venous disease.

Start with Vascular Screening

It all begins with taking your vascular health seriously. Consult with your doctor or schedule an appointment for one of our weekly Vascular Health Screenings.

Our Vascular Health Screenings cost $75 per person or $125 per couple. Call (603) 740-2671 to schedule your time.

These preventative screenings test for:

Carotid Artery Disease

Narrowing of the carotid arteries, two of four major vessels that carry blood to the brain, is relatively common for the senior population. That’s because atherosclerosis causes the build-up over the years of deposits, or plaques, inside the vessel.

Risk factors for atherosclerosis include family history, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking and diabetes.

Vascular disease is a relatively common complication of diabetes. Since the disease is often associated with other problems such as high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol, atherosclerosis may appear in patients as young as 30 to 40 years of age.

Poor circulation, sensory neuropathy and infection are other common complications for diabetics.

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms (AAA)

A widening, stretching or ballooning of the aorta, most commonly from atherosclerotic disease. As the aorta gets progressively larger over time, there is an increased chance of rupture.

High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)

A common disease in which blood flows through blood vessels (arteries) at higher than normal pressure.

Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)

A condition of the blood vessels that leads to narrowing and hardening of the arteries that supply blood to the legs and feet. This can injure nerves and other tissues.

Our comprehensive vascular team encompasses all the vascular services you’d expect. All on one campus.
