Our Approach & Expertise

Welcome to NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Interventions. As part of one of the world's leading healthcare systems, we are at the leading edge of new therapies. We diagnose and treat the full range of noncardiac vascular disorders, those conditions that involve the arteries and veins outside of the heart. Treatments involve proven state-of-the-art therapies and, when appropriate, exciting new investigational modalities.

The division is unique in that it is part of the NewYork-Presbyterian Healthcare System. This means that in addition to receiving their vascular care at Columbia University Medical Center, patients may be seen at NewYork-Presbyterian network hospitals in Queens and New Jersey. This provides our patients access to a vast array of the most modern healthcare services available anywhere in the world.

Minimally Invasive Procedures

Minimally invasive vascular surgery procedures provide an alternative to traditional, open surgical procedures. Also referred to as endovascular surgery, minimally invasive procedures generally involve correcting the vascular problem using either a very short incision or no incision at all! Minimally invasive procedures utilize catheters and implantable devices such as stents or stent grafts.

The Columbia Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Interventions places a special emphasis on minimally invasive procedures for treating vascular diseases. Our physicians have extensive experience and a clear track record in performing all of the newest procedures including stents and angioplasty for carotid artery disease, aortic aneurysms, and blockages in arteries throughout the body.

While our physicians will always first consider the least invasive alternatives for a patient's condition, vascular diseases will at times require surgical intervention. Although many minimally invasive procedures are available, in some instances an open surgical procedure is still the most appropriate treatment.

Lighting fast, leading-edge medical imaging system — the Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Interventions at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center (NYPH/CUMC), is utilizing Siemens Artis Zeego®. Giving patients more complete information than any other imaging system, The Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Interventions at NYPH/CUMC, is advancing patients' vascular care to a higher dimension.

Leading all other hospitals in fostering space-age technology, the Division had patients in mind when they installed five of these new 3D imaging systems. Good news for treating aneurysms; carotid disease; critical limb ischemia; hemodialysis; lower extremity vascular disease; and venous disease. As well, vascular non-invasive laboratory duplex and physiologic studies and wound care, with special emphasis on evolving endovascular therapies, all benefit from the device's robotized C-arm.

Enhancing accurate diagnosis for surgical management of patients with this futuristic device, the Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Interventions at NYPH/CUMC has an intuitive imaging system for anatomical detail, which eases imaging of essential vascular regions for precise diagnosis of vascular abnormalities, providing complete control in the OR.
