If you find you need vascular surgery, there’s no better place to be than Mount Carmel. With the most dedicated vascular surgeons in central Ohio and a specially trained team of nurses and clinicians, we see more vascular surgery patients than any other health system in Greater Columbus.
Our surgical team has extensive experience using the latest techniques and high-tech tools to expertly diagnose and surgically treat narrowing or blockage of the peripheral arteries, as well as defects or damage in the peripheral veins. That includes both traditional and minimally invasive procedures like these:
A bypass graft creates a new pathway for blood flow around a vascular blockage using a portion of a vein or a man-made synthetic tube.
Thrombectory and embolecotmy are used to remove abnormal or dangerous blood clots using a balloon catheter.
When there is a bulging, weakened area in the wall of the aorta, this procedure is used to prevent it from rupturing.
Carotid endarterectomy is used to remove blood-vessel-narrowing plaque from the carotid arteries.
Dialysis access creates fistulas or shunts for dialysis access devices so that patients can more easily receive hemodialysis to filter their blood. For chronic dialysis patients who have exhausted other access options, the surgically implanted HeRO catheter is available.
