Our Approach to Care
At NewYork-Presbyterian, our vascular specialists consider the whole patient and customize therapy to fit the patient’s individual needs. Many patients with vascular disease have complex medical histories and need their treatment plan to match their other medical problems in addition to their vascular issues. The majority of people we evaluate are treated with non-surgical interventions--such as medication or lifestyle modifications--while we monitor your condition for further progression. Our team will help coordinate your vascular care, arranging for any vascular imaging tests needed to make an accurate diagnosis and choose the best treatment for you.
Multidisciplinary team approach
We take a multidisciplinary team approach to meet the needs of each of our patients. Our vascular specialists collaborate with experts in interventional radiology, vascular nursing, vascular technology, and other disciplines, ensuring that our patients receive high-quality, comprehensive treatment.
Minimally invasive therapies
In treating vascular disease, our goal is to keep patients healthy and improve their quality of life. Whenever possible, our vascular specialists use minimally invasive endovascular therapies to correct vascular issues in a way that minimizes the physical impact and need for prolonged recovery periods.
State-of-the-art techniques and technologies
From diagnosis through treatment and follow-up, our patients receive state-of-the-art care. We use cutting-edge diagnostic tools, and if treatment is necessary, we offer innovative and minimally-invasive endovascular treatments for vascular conditions including peripheral arterial disease, aortic aneurysms and dissections, carotid stenosis and stroke prevention, and venous disease including DVT and pulmonary embolism.
Empowering patients with information
We encourage all prospective patients and their families to learn as much as possible about their medical condition and options for care. We offer periodic free screenings for vascular disease, and we encourage patients to talk with our vascular specialists to confirm a diagnosis, get a second opinion, or evaluate their treatment options.
