Vascular and Endovascular Specialty Associates
The St. Dominic Hospital Vascular and Endovascular surgeons provides care to patients with diseases of the arteries and veins with a special interest in minimally invasive catheter-based care for peripheral vascular disease and aneurysmal disease. Resources include a state of the art hybrid endovascular suite with around the clock staffing for both scheduled and emergency cases. We also have a comprehensive ultrasound imaging and blood flow analysis laboratory available both within the hospital and at our outpatient clinic. Utilizing the aforementioned resources, we are able to provide the best and most up to date detection, treatment and prevention strategies for vascular disease including both open surgical and minimally invasive catheter-based vascular procedures.
The division engages in a range of innovative research efforts, including endovascular grafting techniques for aortic aneurysms and aortic dissection. The state of Mississippi is a “hotbed” for peripheral vascular disease and hence the division is at the forefront of minimally invasive strategies and research on restoring blood flow to the lower extremities.
Our clinical services include care for abdominal aortic aneurysms, thoracic aortic aneurysms, peripheral vascular disease (PAD, PVD), diabetic vascular disease, carotid artery disease, aortic dissection, renal artery disease, mesenteric vascular disease, varicose veins, dialysis access, all types of thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS), venous stasis, deep venous thrombosis (DVT), arterio-venous malformations (AVMs) and wound care.
If you have been diagnosed with cardiovascular disease and/or thoracic disease, our highly skilled cardiovascular surgeons are well trained in the latest surgical or minimally invasive procedures.
This includes, but is not limited to, coronary artery bypass grafting, valve replacements or repairs and carotid endarterectomies. Bypasses for stenosis of veins or arteries can be performed to allow better flow of blood and oxygen to diseased vessels of the extremities. Abdominal aortic aneurysm and thoracic aortic aneurysm repairs – both by open and endovascular approach – are performed by our surgeons.
