Vascular / Endovascular

St. John offers highly specialized services to evaluate, diagnose, and treat blood vessel diseases.

Our vascular/endovascular program features state-of-the-art, minimally invasive procedures, which can shorten hospital stays and recovery times. We can also diminish the possibility of complications traditionally associated with more extensive operative treatment.

St. John Medical Center is home to a wide range of vascular specialists, including interventional radiologists, interventional cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, neurosurgeons and fellowship-trained vascular surgeons. Our staff provides evaluation and operative intervention to treat even the most complex vascular problems, such as:

  • Carotid artery blockage 
  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm 
  • Aneurysm repair 
  • Peripheral artery disease
  • Peripheral arteries including carotid arteries
