MISS | Endovascular Surgeons
What is endovascular surgery?
Endovascular surgery treats conditions affecting your blood vessels (vascular system) without making large incisions. Surgeons repair these vessels and remove blood clots to restore blood flow and prevent damage to your brain, heart, limbs and lungs.

What conditions do healthcare providers treat with endovascular surgery?
Healthcare providers use endovascular procedures to treat many conditions involving blood vessels and heart vessels.
These conditions include:
Aneurysm: A bulging or weak area forms in a blood vessel. Aneurysms can happen in the aorta (abdominal aortic aneurysm and thoracic aortic aneurysm) and in other blood vessels in your body.
Atherosclerosis: Plaque builds up in your arteries. Atherosclerosis keeps your blood from flowing as it should.
Carotid artery disease: This narrowing of the carotid arteries happens when plaque builds up. Carotid artery disease raises your risk of stroke.
Deep vein thrombosis: Blood clots form in veins deep inside your body. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) can cause complications when clots break off and travel through your bloodstream.
Peripheral artery disease: Blockages form in the limbs, often the legs. Peripheral artery disease can cause poor circulation.
How common is vascular disease?
Between eight and 12 million Americans have peripheral artery disease. Healthcare providers diagnose almost 200,000 Americans with abdominal aortic aneurysms each year. Vascular disease also contributes to heart attack and stroke.
Do I need a referral to see a Endovascular Surgeon?
Depending on your insurance, you may need to get a referral from your family doctor to see a endovascular surgeon. Your primary care provider might want you to see a endovascular surgeon if you have symptoms of a vascular disease.
