Vascular Surgery

Surgical Associates of Marshall County offers minimally invasive vascular surgery.

Conditions of the blood vessels and lymphatic system are often treated with vascular surgery. The experienced surgeons at Surgical Associates of Marshall County are equipped to address a wide variety of vascular conditions with both open and endovascular techniques.

What is Vascular Surgery?

Vascular surgery refers to any operation performed on the veins or arteries. Our surgeons are experts in minimally invasive endovascular techniques that are performed entirely through the veins and arteries and do not require major skin incisions. This can reduce post-surgical downtime and the risk of complications, while traditional open surgery can still be performed if needed.

At Surgical Associates of Marshall County, we offer vascular procedures for:

Varicose Veins

Varicose veins appear as ropey, bulging, discolored veins on the legs. In addition to being unsightly and uncomfortable, varicose veins can lead to complications if left untreated. At Surgical Associates of Marshall County, we provide a variety of treatment options for varicose veins, including:

  • Endovenous Laser Ablation of the Saphenous Vein (ELAS)
  • Subfascial Endoscopic Perforator Surgery (SEPS)
  • Microphlebectomy
  • Stab Phlebectomy
  • Sclerotherapy

Carotid Artery Endarterectomy, Angioplasty and Stenting

The carotid arteries supply blood to the brain, but can become clogged with plaque and increase your risk of stroke. Carotid artery surgery can remove this plaque and strengthen the artery to prevent further complications.

Renal Artery Stenting and Bypass

The renal arteries provide blood to the kidneys. When they become clogged with plaque, it can increase blood pressure and eventually lead to kidney failure. Renal artery surgery is performed to open the artery or provide a substitute route for blood to reach the kidneys.

Aortic Aneurysm Surgery

The aorta is the large blood vessel that provides blood to the abdomen, pelvis and legs. A condition known as aortic aneurysm occurs when the aorta enlarges abnormally, which can lead to severe internal bleeding if the aneurysm ruptures. To prevent this dangerous complication or treat aneurysms that are bleeding, large or growing, we offer:

  • Traditional open surgery
  • Endovascular stent grafting

Peripheral Artery Surgery

Arteries located furthest from the heart (as in the feet, hands and legs) are known as peripheral arteries. Plaque can build up in these arteries and prevent proper functioning, leading to tissue damage and potentially serious cardiovascular complications. At Surgical Associates of Marshall County, we offer additional vascular surgery or peripheral artery surgeries like:

  • Stenting
  • Angioplasty
  • Peripheral atherectomy
  • Endarterectomy
  • Open bypass surgery
