Heritage Valley Health System’s Vascular Surgery program is one of the most comprehensive heart health programs in the region. The Vascular Surgery program is a valuable asset to area residents who would otherwise have to travel to Pittsburgh for this type of quality care.
The Vascular/Endovascular Surgery program offers a broad range of services including the management of peripheral arterial disease, extracranial cerebrovascular disease, aneurysmal disease, vascular access, venous and lymphatic pathology. Procedures are performed in both the Catheterization Laboratory as well as the Surgical Operating Suite. Endovascular technology has revolutionized vascular treatment paradigms and often patients can be treated for extensive pathologies with minimally invasive techniques such as stents, stent-grafts, angioplasty, atherectomy, etc. and leave the hospital within 24 hours.
