Advanced Vascular Care

Veins and arteries—key parts of our cardiovascular system—carry blood and oxygen through the body and help keep us healthy. When these vessels narrow from a buildup of plaque, the resulting vascular disease—if untreated—can lead to heart attack, stroke, amputation or other health conditions.

Board-certified vascular surgeons affiliated with Palos perform complex procedures on both arteries and veins, services only available from highly qualified medical professionals using advanced technology such as the hybrid surgical suite--the only one of its kind in the southwest suburbs--designed to enhance patient safety and outcomes.
