Vascular Surgery vs. Endovascular Surgery

Vascular Surgery

Vascular surgery consists of procedures or techniques to correct blood vessels outside of the heart and brain that may be narrowed, blocked or dilated. Vascular surgery includes treatment of all vessels outside the heart and brain.

Endovascular Surgery

An alternative to traditional open surgery, endovascular surgery is an innovative, less invasive procedure that offers advantages such as small incisions, shorter hospital stay, less pain and quicker return to normal activities. However, endovascular surgery is not always feasible in all patients, so be sure to discuss this with your physician.

Vascular and endovascular surgeries available at Memorial Hermann include:
