Vascular surgeons specialize in treating diseases of the body’s circulatory system, also known as the vascular system. Your circulatory system is made up of the arteries and veins that carry blood throughout your body.

The Valley Approach to Vascular Surgery

Our vascular surgeons treat complex conditions that affect the vascular system, such as abdominal aortic aneurysms and peripheral artery disease.

Vascular surgeons at Valley have specialized training that allows them to perform both traditional surgeries and minimally invasive approaches. Because they are trained in both approaches, they can offer you the treatment that will best serve your individual needs.

Why Choose Valley for Vascular Surgery?

  • One of America’s best hospitals: The Valley Hospital received recognition by Healthgrades in 2016 and 2017 as one of America’s 50 Best Hospitals for Vascular Surgery. This designation places Valley among Healthgrades’s top 10 percent in the nation for vascular surgery. Valley has also received the Vascular Surgery Excellence Award for two years in a row.

  • High-volume expertise: In 2016, Valley’s vascular surgeons treated 845 patients with minimally invasive vascular surgical procedures, a record number at the hospital.

  • Custom fenestrated aortic aneurysm stent grafts: Vascular surgeons at Valley implanted more fenestrated aortic aneurysm stent grafts for patients with complex abdominal aortic aneurysms than any other hospital in Bergen County. These stent grafts use custom-made grafts that are designed to fit each patient individually. The procedure significantly reduces recovery time and lowers risk of complications. It is ideal for patients whose aneurysms cannot be repaired using traditional techniques.

  • Reducing risk for stroke: Vascular surgeons at Valley perform carotid endarterectomy to clear plaque buildup in your carotid arteries that could lead to stroke. By clearing the buildup, surgeons restore blood flow to your brain.
