Our practice specialties include:
Endovascular Surgery combining principles of traditional vascular surgery with minimally invasive treatments using angioplasty and stenting. Tucson Vascular Specialists established itself as a leader in this field by placing the first endovascular grafts for aortic aneurysms in Tucson in February 2000. We continue expanding the possibilities for minimally invasive treatment of thoracic aneurysms, renal artery stenosis, lower extremity disease and carotid artery disease through our ongoing research.

Complex Aortic Reconstruction including abdominal aortic and thoracoabdominal aneurysms and visceral and renal artery occlusive disease.

Limb Salvage Revascularization requiring bypasses in high-risk patients to tibial and pedal arteries.

Vascular Access with a special emphasis on dialysis access including fistulas, grafts, and catheters following DOQI guidelines.

Cerebrovascular disease including carotid endarterectomy, aortic arch branch reconstruction and angioplasty, carotid bifurcation angioplasty/stenting in non-surgical candidates.

Complex wound management resulting from arterial and/or venous insufficiency, diabetic foot infections and trauma. Free flap tissue transfer performed in concert with plastic and reconstructive surgeons.

Noninvasive Vascular Ultrasound testing is available at our Northwest office including carotid Doppler, Aortic and peripheral arterial imaging, physiologic arterial testing, renal artery imaging, mesenteric imaging and physiologic testing, venous imaging, and bypass graft surveillance.
