One area of particular pride is our Vascular Services Practice Area. Vascular surgery procedures are those addressing arteries, veins and lymphatics. While the vascular surgery field is quite specialized, the types of patients are quite diverse. For instance, aortic aneurysm repair is usually needed as patients age. Varicose veins, on the other hand, often affect younger people.

Led by Vascular surgeons Dr. Douglas Roese and Dr. Jason Christie, Vascular Services offered by Southern Indiana Surgery include the following:

Why choose a vascular surgeon?

Vascular surgeons are trained in both open and endovascular interventions, which allows a vascular surgeon to offer a non-biased treatment plan for each patient. This plan may involve a minimally-invasive (endovascular) procedure, open surgical procedure or a combination of both (hybrid procedure). There is no other specialty that can offer this. Our vascular surgeons are board certified in both general and vascular surgery and are comfortable operating anywhere in the body with the exception of the coronary and intracranial vasculature. Starting treatment under the care of a vascular surgeon saves the patient any delay in care that comes with a referral to a vascular surgeon later in the treatment course after an endovascular intervention has failed, a complication arises or an open procedure is indicated.
