Vascular Surgery: Minimally Invasive Surgery to Get You Up and Around Quickly

Hosted by Joseph V. Lombardi, MD

It is estimated that nearly 25% of people are affected by peripheral vascular disease. If you’ve been diagnosed with a blood vessel disorder, for example an aneurysm, carotid artery disease, or poor circulation to your legs and feet, vascular surgeons at Cooper University Hospital offer minimally invasive surgical techniques designed to get you fixed, fast. Known as endovascular surgery, these minimally invasive procedures avoid more invasive surgery for select patients, offering less pain and trauma, shorter recovery time and excellent results.  Dr. Lombardi will answer your questions about treatments that are now available that may get you up and around quickly.  Please send us your questions today.
