Treatment for Vascular Disorders
At The GW Medical Faculty Associates, our vascular surgeons are highly experienced in the evaluation, prevention, management, treatment, and follow up care of all vascular disorders. Using state-of-the-art technology, we offer a full spectrum of management and treatment options, including minimally-invasive options for patients with vascular conditions that range from prevention to management and treatment of complex venous or arterial diseases, and everything in between.
We specialize in caring for patients with peripheral vascular disease, aneurysms, aortic dissection and carotid artery disease. Our commitment to patients is singular; our treatment regimens are diverse, including: non-invasive diagnosis, medical therapy, vascular surgery and interventional procedures. We are an academic Vascular Surgical Practice whose mission is to provide superior care and utilize the most effective techniques in the treatment of Vascular Diseases.
