What is Vascular Surgery?
The Vascular Division of
CaroMont Heart & Vascular performs over 500 procedures annually for patients with a broad spectrum
of vascular diseases in our inpatient and outpatient facilities.
Our physicians are board certified vascular surgeons who treat a wide variety
of vascular diseases including: aneurysms of the abdominal aorta (AAA),
peripheral arterial disease (PAD), occlusive disease of the cerebrovascular
circulation by open and endovascular techniques, dialysis access, and
minimally invasive treatments for venous disease.
CaroMont Heart & Vascular utilizes a multidisciplinary approach for the treatment and management
of peripheral arterial disease (PAD), a disease process that affects millions
of Americans every year. This collaborative effort often involves coordinating
care between numerous specialties including Interventional Cardiology,
Vascular Surgery, Podiatry and General Surgery.
CaroMont Heart & Vascular providers work closely with the wound care center in Gaston County, often
evaluating and managing arterial or venous disease that may be contributing
to delayed wound healing.
Non-invasive vascular laboratory testing is performed on site. Our ultrasound
technologists are Registered Vascular Technologists (RVTs). Combined they
perform over 5000 studies annually in an "Intersocietal Accreditation
Commission" accredited vascular laboratory. Typically, every effort
will be made to coordinate your ultrasound imaging results with a follow-up
visit with a vascular surgery provider on the same day.
