Conditions We Treat
At Weiss Memorial Hospital, our vascular surgeons offer a wide variety of vascular treatments for conditions such as:
- Limb salvage
- Aortic aneurysm
- Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
- Dialysis access
- Carotid arterial disease (stroke prevention)
- Lower extremity peripheral arterial disease (PAD)
- Mesenteric and renal artery occlusive disease

Minimally Invasive Treatment
The vascular surgeons at Weiss Memorial Hospital employ both non-operative therapies and surgical treatments. When possible, they utilize minimally invasive interventions such as angioplasty, stenting and stent grafting for PAD to reduce your period of recovery, scarring and pain during treatment. For non-operative therapies, your needs are met through our Noninvasive Vascular Laboratory. Our Noninvasive Vascular Lab is IAC accredited and run by our highly experienced team using duplex ultrasonography to visualize and quantify plaque formation and arterial narrowing.
When you’re suffering from venous disease, the Vein Clinic at Weiss Memorial Hospital offers individually tailored treatment options to fit your needs. Our team of vascular surgeons offers non-surgical, minimally invasive and conventional surgical options to treat venous disease, including varicose vein treatment.
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) & Supervised Exercise Therapy (SET)
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is a circulatory problem caused by a narrowing of the peripheral arteries. PAD most commonly affects the legs, causing pain and decreased mobility. Weiss Memorial Hospital’s Cardiac Rehab Department provides a PAD Exercise Therapy program for people with leg pain and cramping caused by PAD.
Center for Limb Preservation
Limb loss has far-reaching effects on your health, with nearly half of individuals who have an amputation due to vascular disease surviving fewer than five years. That’s why getting expert, comprehensive limb care is essential to your health.

Why Should I Be Concerned About My Vascular Health?
Vascular problems can put your health at risk including an increased risk for stroke — the third most common cause of death in the United States. Our vascular center at Weiss Memorial Hospital can assess your risk for stroke through non-invasive testing. Vascular problems involving the legs can lead to pain and discomfort as well as limb loss if left untreated. Evaluation and treatment of varicose veins and other vein disorders can help keep legs healthy. Receiving expert treatment can improve health, reducing risks of more serious health concerns and improving your quality of life.
