Vascular Surgery in Knoxville, TN

The Vascular System (arteries and veins) carries blood throughout your body back to the heart. Poor circulation can affect your legs, arms, neck and kidneys, and can lead to heart attack and stroke.

SPECIFIC VASCULAR TRAINING

Vascular Surgeons diagnose, treat, and manage issues affecting circulation outside the heart and brain, especially the legs, arms, neck and kidneys. They are specifically trained to treat peripheral Vascular System issues medically, minimally-invasively, and surgically, if needed. Only a Vascular Surgeon can provide all treatment options.

Premier Surgical has East Tennessee’s largest group of board-certified vascular surgeons, many of whom are endovascular fellowship-trained.

Premier Surgical provides a full spectrum of vascular, endovascular and interventional care. Our services range from complex, life-threatening issues to the latest advances in the laser vein treatments such as:

  • Endarectomy (carotid artery surgery)
  • Stenting for stroke treatment
  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm repair and reconstruction
  • Limb salvage
  • Arteriovenous fistula placement
BETTER OUTCOMES

Studies show that Vascular Surgeons have lower overall mortality rates in Aortic Aneurysm Repair and Peripheral Arterial Interventions when compare to Cardiologists and Interventional Radiologists.*April 2013 issue of Cardiology News; Nov. 2009 issue of the Journal of Vascular Surgery

QUESTIONS TO ASK WHEN CHOOSING A VASCULAR SPECIALIST:
  • Are you specifically certified or trained in Vascular Surgery?
  • How many of this type of procedure have you performed?
  • If bleeding or complications occur, who will address those?
PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE

Peripheral Arterial Disease (previously referred to as Peripheral Vascular Disease) is a dangerous hardening of the arteries that affects more than 10 million Americans, most over age 50.

If untreated, Peripheral Arterial Disease (or PAD) can lead to serious artery blockages that result in limb infections, gangrene, and amputation of your leg. You also have an increased risk of heart attack and stroke.

Even though PAD is common, many people don’t realize they have it. Diagnosing and treating PAD now, can help prevent serious problems later.

COULD YOU HAVE PAD?

If you have at least 3 of the following 4 risk factors, you are at higher risk of PAD.

  • Diabetic
  • Smoker
  • Experience leg pain with walking
  • Have leg or foot sores that won’t heal
