Vascular Surgery

The vascular system is a network of vessels that carry blood throughout the body, delivering oxygen and nutrients while removing waste products. Diseases of the vascular system – ranging from conditions affecting the arteries or veins to blood clotting disorders – are common but can also have serious consequences.

The board-certified vascular surgeons at Waterbury HEALTH have dedicated their entire careers to vascular care. While they regularly perform procedures for both routine and complicated issues, our vascular surgeons may also recommend non-surgical treatment options such as medication or exercise for many conditions. They are backed by a dedicated staff and have access to the most up-to-date medical equipment and technology available.

Our team of experts specializes in every kind of vascular problem, except those of the heart. We offer our patients treatment for the following conditions that affect the vascular system:

  • Aortic aneurysm
  • Aortic embolism and thrombosis
  • Carotid artery disease
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Dialysis access
  • Nonhealing leg wounds
  • Peripheral arterial aneurysm
  • Peripheral vascular disease (PAD, PVD)
  • Renal artery arteriosclerotic disease
  • Stroke

Many vascular conditions are manageable, if diagnosed early enough. We provide a range of procedures that include diagnostic testing, minimally invasive treatment, and surgery:

  • Angioplasty with stent placement
  • Aortic repair
  • Arteriovenous fistula creation and management
  • Carotid artery stent placement
  • Carotid endarterectomy (CEA)
  • Limb salvage surgery
  • Open and endovascular aneurysm repair
  • Peripheral artery bypass
  • Port placement or replacement
  • Thromboendarterectomy
  • Varicose vein procedures
  • Venous stent placement
