At NYU Langone’s Outpatient Vascular Surgery Center, we perform same-day, minimally invasive procedures to diagnose and treat conditions that affect veins and arteries throughout the body, including those in the legs, arms, and kidneys.

Ours is the only dedicated vascular surgery center in New York City, and our vascular surgeons have performed more than 3,000 procedures here. In recognition of our commitment to quality and safety, we are recognized by the Society for Vascular Surgery Vascular Quality Initiative and accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities.

Treatment for Venous and Arterial Diseases

When blood flow is restricted through an artery or vein, our doctors perform advanced, minimally invasive procedures to open the vessel and prevent dangerous blood clots from forming. To diagnose such conditions, we often use catheter-based intravascular ultrasound, which provides a 360-degree internal view of the affected vessel. 

Our vascular surgeons perform procedures to restore blood flow in peripheral arteries in the arms, hands, feet, and legs, and treat people with lower extremity arterial disease, which occurs when there is a lack of blood flow from the heart to the legs. We also perform procedures to restore blood flow in the veins, which carry blood back to the heart. 

We treat deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a condition that causes blood clots to form in the deep veins of the legs, and compression syndromes such as May-Thurner syndrome, where blood flow through the vein is restricted. This condition can also lead to DVT.

Procedures we perform include the following:

  • arteriogram, which uses a special dye to look for blockages in arteries and veins
  • angioplasty, which uses a long, flexible, hollow tube called a catheter to advance a small balloon to the site of an arterial or venous blockage; as the balloon inflates, it eases plaque out of the way and clears the blockage
  • stenting, which uses a catheter to advance a flexible, metal mesh tube to the site of the blockage in an artery or vein, where it moves aside the plaque and creates scaffolding to keep the vessel clear
  • atherectomy, which surgically removes a blockage or uses laser heat energy to vaporize the obstruction

Inferior Vena Cava Filter for Deep Vein Thrombosis

People with deep vein thrombosis are at risk for blood clots that may travel to the lungs and cause pulmonary embolism, a dangerous and potentially life-threatening condition. Our surgeons use an inferior vena cava filter to catch clots and prevent them from going to the lungs.

To place the filter, the surgeon first threads a catheter through a small incision in the groin, then advances the filter to the inferior vena cava, a large vein that runs through the middle of the body. Our vascular surgeons use minimally invasive, catheter-based techniques to remove the filter when necessary.

Dialysis Access Procedures

Our surgeons provide care for people with kidney disease who are receiving dialysis treatment. We perform a fistulogram test to measure blood flow through the arteriovenous (AV) fistula, which is the vessel used for dialysis access, and to look for blood clots that could affect the quality and effectiveness of dialysis treatment. We perform procedures that improve blood flow during dialysis by embolizing, or blocking, vessels that are siphoning blood flow from the AV fistula, as well as angioplasty or stenting to open any blockages in the artery and vein used for dialysis. We also use thrombectomy, which removes blood clots in the dialysis circuit.
