Minimally Invasive Endovascular TechniquesWe treat a number of vascular disease conditions via minimally invasive catheter-based procedures. These endovascular treatments feature smaller incisions, faster healing, less pain and shorter recovery with virtually no down time. You quickly return to work, school and other activities of daily living.
Endovascular procedures range from peripheral angioplasty as well as stent graft placement for the treatment of aortic aneurysms and carotid artery disease. NorthShore’s Evanston Hospital houses a state-of-the-art endovascular suite that provides our vascular surgeons with the latest imaging technology and endovascular instruments for both inpatient and same-day surgeries. Located within the Operating Room, the suite is dedicated to serving the specific needs of our vascular surgery patients.
NorthShore’s vascular surgeons also have extensive experience treating venous conditions such as varicose veins with a wide array of leading-edge procedures. We are now offering the new-FDA approved VenaSeal™ Closure System, a non-surgical option that effectively treats varicose veins with little to no pain.
Open Surgical Therapies
Our vascular surgeons are skilled in providing the advanced open or conventional surgical options, when needed, for the treatment of vascular disease, including:
- Arterial bypass
- Carotid endarterectomy
- Abdominal or thoracic aortic aneurysm repair
- Advanced limb salvage or reconstruction
Not all vascular conditions require major or, in fact, any surgery. Our vascular surgery and vascular medicine specialists combine their expertise to provide you with the optimal vascular care plan. Our physicians often employ risk modification strategies such as diet and exercise; medication and/or minimally invasive interventional procedures in their treatment planning. Comprehensive surveillance of your vascular disease is also an important component of your care at NorthShore.
