Vascular Surgery Clinical Synopsis

Joe Zarge with a patient.

Faculty surgeons of the Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy provide clinical services through Emory Healthcare, treating such conditions as acute venous thrombosis and chronic venous insufficiency, abdominal aortic aneurysms, thoracic and thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms, carotid artery disease, peripheral arterial disease (PAD), varicose and spider veins, venous stasis ulcers, thoracic dissections, and adult arteriovenous (AV) malformations.

The treatment options performed by Emory vascular surgeons include:

  • Balloon angioplasty to widen narrow blood vessels

  • Advanced technologies to treat peripheral arterial disease

  • Surgery to restore blood flow (revascularization)

  • Stents to support arteries and keep blood vessels open

  • Carotid endarterectomy to clean plaque build-up out of your carotid artery, reducing your risk of stroke

  • Fenestrated and branched endograft implantation, which includes such advantages as small or no incisions and shorther hospital stays

  • Thrombolytic therapy to break up blood clots quickly

  • Laser and radiofrequency treatments for varicose veins

  • Sclerotherapy to close spider veins using medicines

Advanced diagnostic imaging services for vascular and venous conditions that may require surgery are available at the Emory Non-Invasive Vascular Laboratory. The lab is is accredited by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories (ICAVL) and staffed by highly qualified and experienced vascular technologists and physicians.
