Vascular surgery specialists
Lakeview Regional Physician Group offers extensive cardiovascular services, including vascular surgery. Diseases and conditions of the blood vessels, if left untreated, can cause obstructions in circulatory and cardiac function. Our board-certified medical team demonstrates a compassionate care approach in the surgical treatment of our patients' common and advanced vascular concerns.
Types of vascular surgery
We perform vascular surgery at our Slidell, Hammond, and Lacombe offices, which aim to treat the following issues, among others:
Our surgical procedures
Our board-certified orthopedic surgeon and his team use a surgical approach to diagnose and treat specific conditions. Some of the surgeries we offer include the following:
- Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA): Ballooning of the aorta, the blood vessel that serves as the body's primary route of blood delivery, occurs in the abdominal region and requires surgical intervention to prevent rupture.
- Artery Occlusion: Resulting in the obstruction of a major blood vessel, occlusion sometimes requires surgery to help remove plaque and restore proper circulation.
- Carotid Stenosis: A form of artery occlusion that occurs in the carotid artery of the neck, which carries blood from the heart to the brain, carotid stenosis can be treated with surgery.
- Varicose Veins: Twisted, bulging veins, while typically benign, can cause aching pain that can be resolved with surgical treatment.
Post-operative vascular surgery care
After your vascular surgery, our medical team will review the goals you set with them prior to your operation to establish a basic plan for recovery. We will communicate with you often to discuss your level of pain to help ensure you are as comfortable as possible, and we will work together with you to help you accomplish post-operative mobility milestones such as moving, standing, and walking.
