Vascular & Endovascular Surgery Program

Led by renowned specialist Eric T. Choi, MD, Temple’s vascular and endovascular surgeons offer hope to patients whose artery and vein conditions may threaten life and limb, helping them return to a good quality of life. Our experienced team of specialists uses open, hybrid and minimally invasive techniques to repair blood vessels and restore circulation, and has helped pioneer many of the methods now considered standards of care for aortic and vascular surgery.

Temple's vascular surgeons strive to perform minimally invasive endovascular treatments whenever possible, thereby reducing pain, the length of hospital stays and the risk of infection.

Innovative Care

Temple’s advanced surgical facilities for procedures give patients access to minimally invasive (endovascular) therapeutic options like endovascular aortic repair (EVAR). Our team performs minimally invasive surgeries whenever possible to reduce blood loss and recovery time. Our specialists are also highly skilled at traditional surgeries like bypass grafting for carotid and peripheral arterial disease.

Patients benefit from the constant research of our surgeons and vascular specialists into next-generation devices, biomolecular and bone marrow-based therapies for regenerating blood vessels, and new ways of treating patients with complex vascular diseases.
