There is sea change going on in the field of vascular surgery. There is an increasing trend in reliance on noninvasive vascular testing and endovascular interventions in the management of peripheral arterial disease. While traditional open surgical techniques provided good short and long-term results these new innovative techniques give patients new potentially less invasive options with a shorter hospital stay and less patient discomfort. We at Sandhills Surgical Associates have totally embraced these new innovative technologies in the management of vascular patients. We provide noninvasive diagnosis, screening, and minimally invasive treatment of arterial, venous and lymphatic diseases using the latest state of the art imaging equipment available at Cape fear Valley Medical Center. Vascular surgeons are the only physicians uniquely positioned through their training to provide you with both traditional open surgery and these newer minimally invasive endovascular techniques. They are equally well trained in the non- surgical management of vascular diseases, providing diagnosis, screening, and counseling for patients with vascular disorders. We are your one stop shop for the management of vascular diseases.

We evaluate every patient's unique medical circumstance and offer an individually tailored approach to vascular care based on the patient's specific needs. Using that approach surgical, endovascular and medical options are reviewed with the patient and their family. Because we offer all these services our recommendations are non-baised and guided solely by the patient’s specific needs.
