Endovascular Surgery

Endovascular surgery at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital has grown tremendously over the past 5 years. We have developed a state of the art endovascular surgical program at the hospital that includes procedures for arterial diseases, aneurysms, venous disease and deep venous thrombosis, and dialysis access. Our Vascular Center of Excellence can provide endovascular treatment options for the most basic and most complicated vascular issues.

About 1000 endovascular procedures are performed annually at our institution. Endovascular procedures are now routinely performed for thoracic and abdominal aneurysms, peripheral aneurysms such as popliteal aneurysms, peripheral arterial disease, arterial-venous malformations, venous disease and varicose veins, dialysis access procedures, and a variety of other less common vascular disorders.

Endovascular procedures for the treatment of vascular disease have revolutionized the practice of vascular surgery, and Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital continues to be a leader in the community by providing these new technologies to our patients. We have been able to provide safer treatment options and better outcomes as a result of our shift to more minimally invasive procedures. Many patients who were in the past turned down for vascular procedures can now be satisfactorily treated with minimal risk, short hospital stays, and fast recoveries.
