Vascular surgery at GRMC

During your first visit, GRMC’s vascular surgeon will discuss your treatment options and explain the risks and benefits. The best course of treatment will depend on your health and medical history. At GRMC, we take the time to get to know you and to answer questions about your care so you know what to expect at every step along the way.

If you need surgery, it will be performed by the same highly experienced vascular surgeon. Our vascular surgeon will work with you to ensure a quick, comfortable recovery and the best possible health outcome.

Here’s what to expect when you come in for surgery:

  • Before surgery: You will meet with our vascular nurse, your anesthesiologist and operating room nurse. Then our vascular surgeon will discuss the procedure with you and your loved ones and answer any questions you might have.
  • After surgery: Your surgeon will review the results of the procedure and any additional care with you and your family. You will also see our surgeon within two weeks of any surgical procedure to ensure a smooth recovery.

We’re committed to helping you make a quick, comfortable recovery. After many procedures, such as carotid or arterial surgery, you will most likely go home the following day. Patients with more complex surgeries sometimes stay for one to two days. The vascular surgery staff will coordinate any additional care you need after your procedure.
