The vascular surgeons of NewYork-Presbyterian/Lower Manhattan Hospital are experienced in the latest techniques for treatment of arterial diseases throughout the body, outside of the heart. By using special catheters combined with fluoroscopic equipment, many minimally invasive procedures can be performed for abdominal aortic aneurysms, as well as for blocked arteries in the legs and those leading to the brain. Leg bypasses, carotid endarterectomy, dialysis access surgery, and varicose vein surgery is also performed. Often such procedures can be performed with a shorter hospital stay or on an ambulatory surgery basis.
All NewYork-Presbyterian/Lower Manhattan Hospital physicians are on the faculty of Weill Cornell Medical College. Within the familiar setting of their community hospital, patients experience a level of care found in a leading academic medical center.
