To talk with the heart and vascular specialists at Cottage Health, call 1-844-51-HEART, or visit the Heart & Vascular Physician team page.

Vascular Surgery is a surgical subspecialty in which diseases of the vascular system, or arteries, veins and lymphatic circulation, are managed by medical therapy, minimally-invasive catheter procedures, and surgical reconstruction.

Conditions and Treatments

Below is a listing of the Vascular conditions treated at Cottage Heart and Vascular Center.

Dialysis Access

To keep up a regular dialysis schedule, you need a sturdy dialysis access where blood can flow in and out of the body.

  • Hemodialysis and Peritoneal Dialysis access placement and management

Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD)

Aortic Aneurysms

An aortic aneurysm is a bulge in a section of the aorta, the body's main artery. The aorta carries oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the rest of the body. Because the section with the aneurysm is overstretched and weak, it can burst.

  • Endovascular Repair for Aortic Aneurysm
    • Endovascular Repair of Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm (TEVAR)

    • Endovascular Repair of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (EVAR)

    • Fenestrated Endovascular Repair of Aortic Aneurysm (FEVAR)

Carotid Disease

A carotid artery on each side of the neck supplies blood to the brain. Carotid artery disease occurs when a substance called plaque builds up in either or both arteries. The buildup can narrow the artery and reduce the blood flow to your brain. Severe carotid artery disease can cause a stroke if the plaque fragments and small bits of plaque travel to the brain.
