About our Vascular Center of Excellence
Florida Hospital Cardiovascular Institute vascular surgeons provide state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment for the entire spectrum of arterial and venous conditions. Our physicians are highly experienced in less-invasive endovascular procedures, such as balloon angioplasty, stents and catheter atherectomy. New technologies are constantly being incorporated into treatment regimens to provide our patients with shorter hospital stays and an earlier return to normal activity. In addition, our physicians are conducting FDA-approved clinical trials involving new treatments and devices for aneurysms, carotid disease and refractory hypertension.
During 2008, Florida Hospital Cardiovascular Institute surgeons performed more than 1,000 vascular procedures, including open and endovascular operations for aortic aneurysms, occlusive disease of the extremities, cerebrovascular disease, mesenteric ischemia, renal artery lesions and venous disorders.
