About Our Vascular Medicine Services
The Vascular Institute of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital combines the medical leadership and clinical excellence of two of the oldest and most renowned forces in patient care: NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center.
As one of the world's leading vascular research centers, we are at the cutting edge of new therapies. We are uniquely qualified to offer you superb diagnostic, preventive and therapeutic services – excellence in health care in an atmosphere of compassion and caring.
Our healthcare professionals work together as a unified, patient-centered system. Every day, we are meeting the needs of patients with extraordinarily diverse problems, including those in crisis situations, such as strokes, threatened limbs, kidney failure, and the complications of diabetes.
Vascular procedures now often involve only brief periods in an operating room followed by surprisingly quick periods of at-home recovery. But these procedures are still operations and patients should carefully weigh all of their treatment options before deciding upon a course of care. Vascular surgeons at NewYork-Presbyterian encourage patients to talk with them when evaluating their treatment options.
