The Washington University Advantage

When selecting a vascular surgeon, one needs to consider the surgeon's technical expertise and his or her access to the latest technology. Experience matters. Research has indicated that patients have better outcomes in surgical centers with a high volume of cases.

There is no other group of vascular surgeons in the region with longer and broader experience than these eight men and women. They perform more than 5,500 vascular procedures each year.

Some outpatient procedures are performed in day surgery or physician offices. Major surgeries are scheduled at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, where the top-of-the-line facilities give surgeons options not found in other hospitals.

Procedures include:
  • open and endoluminal treatment of thoracic and infrarenal aortic aneurysms
  • carotid endarterectomy, carotid angioplasty and stenting
  • open treatment of PAD and endoluminal iliac and peripheral angioplasty and stenting
  • dialysis fistulas or dialysis grafts
  • dialysis access
  • innovative techniques for the treatment of severe hypertension
  • treatment of varicose veins (visit the Vein Center web site)
