Due to the recent Novel Coronavirus emergency, some locations may be operating with different hours or temporarily closed.

The Lancaster General Health Physicians Surgical Group performs vascular and endovascular surgery, teaming with other specialists at the Heart & Vascular Institute to help manage and treat a full range of vascular conditions.

Conditions We Treat

  • Peripheral artery disease (PAD)—a blockage or narrowing of the arteries of the body; most commonly found in the legs but can involve many of the body’s arteries
  • Carotid artery stenosis—a narrowing or blockage of the artery leading to the brain
  • Renal artery stenosis—a narrowing or blockage of the arteries leading to the kidneys
  • Mesenteric artery stenosis—a narrowing or blockage of the arteries leading to the intestines
  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA)—a weakening of the wall of the artery that leads from the heart resulting in enlargement of the vessel and an increased risk of rupturing
  • Pulmonary embolism—a clot in the arteries of the lungs
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)— a clot in the veins of the legs
  • Chronic venous insufficiency—can lead to varicose veins, swelling and leg pain, non-healing ulcers and other problems

Our Surgical Approach

Our experienced, board-certified vascular surgeons perform both open surgery and minimally invasive procedures. Endovascular techniques, which involve inserting stents and medications through a catheter, enable us to perform many surgeries with less pain and faster recovery time than tradition open surgery.

Procedures we perform include:

  • Aneurysm repair, including stent grafts
  • Balloon angioplasty and stenting of the leg arteries
  • Bypass surgery for peripheral artery disease
  • Carotid artery endarterectomy to remove plaque
  • Carotid artery stenting
  • Vascular reconstruction
  • Venefit™ (also called VNUS Closure™) for varicose veins
