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
