New Access to Our Vascular Care Benefits Patients on South Shore
This clinical relationship with Long Island Community Hospital will benefit the growing South Shore community, and comes just a year after the start of a similar relationship with our trauma services.
Our vascular team provides diagnostic and therapeutic services for the entire spectrum of vascular disorders. Our surgeons perform a wide array of open and endovascular procedures for management of arterial and venous diseases. They have special expertise in:
- Open and endovascular repair of aortic aneurysms and aortic dissections
- Surgery and stenting for stroke prevention (carotid endarterectomy; carotid stenting; transcarotid artery revascularization)
- Treatment of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) with open and minimally invasive techniques
- Repair of traumatic arterial and venous injuries
- Surgery for diabetic foot ulcers
- Open and endovascular procedures for hemodialysis access
- Minimally invasive surgery for varicose veins and venous obstruction
About the addition of our vascular services at Long Island Community Hospital, Richard T. Margulis, president and chief executive officer there, says:
"We couldn't be more proud to work with these incredible physicians who will be helping us to expand the services we offer to the community. Our top priority is always the serving community and offering this new life-saving care without the delay of transfer is a benefit that is beyond measurement."
Stony Brook Surgical Associates is now offering in Patchogue at Long Island Community Hospital
a scope of diagnostic and treatment options for vascular care unique in Suffolk County.
Apostolos K. Tassiopoulos, MD, professor of surgery, vice chair for quality and outcomes, and chief of our Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Division, says:
"Our goal is to bring the most sophisticated vascular care closer to patients. By expanding our practice to Long Island Community Hospital, we will provide easier access to the latest and most advanced vascular and endovascular therapies for patients living on the South Shore, and will enhance the cardiology and trauma services currently offered there."
Our program in minimally invasive endovascular surgery offers a broad scope of diagnostic and treatment options which are unique in Suffolk County. Our team of nationally and internationally recognized expert physicians will now be providing daily these state-of–the-art services in the Patchogue area.
As part of our vascular services, patients in Long Island Community Hospital will also have access to the services of our Center for Vein Care, which is fully accredited by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission. Our vein care specialists provide treatment for:
- Acute deep vein thrombosis
- Chronic venous thrombosis
- Pelvic congestion syndrome
- Varicose and spider veins
- Venous ulcerations
Our specialists use the latest surgical and non-surgical techniques to treat varicose veins and spider veins of the leg, including new minimally invasive "endovenous" techniques that let patients get back to their normal activities in usually just a couple of days. No general anesthesia or hospitalization is required.
Our vascular surgeons have been recognized for many years for their clinical excellence by selection for inclusion in the Castle Connolly Guide, Top Doctors: New York Metro Area, representing the top 10% of physicians in the New York Metropolitan area.
Patients can be seen at our Patchogue office, which is just across the street from Long Island Community Hospital, at 100 Hospital Road, Suite 203 (map/directions).
