Advanced treatments to provide you with improved vascular health
Baton Rouge Vascular Specialty Center (VSC) is recognized as a premier provider of vascular treatments in the southern Louisiana area. Each year, we treat thousands of patients who have a variety of vascular issues, including complex cases that require only the most experienced, specialized surgeons.
Our highly trained vascular specialists, with the support of a professional medical team, provide treatments for all non-intracranial and non-cardiac arterial and venous conditions. Our comprehensive approach to treating vascular disease saves valuable time and minimizes any risk to you.
We specialize in finding the least invasive, most effective treatments for our patients. Many procedures that previously required an open surgical operation with several days in the hospital and an extended period of recovery can now be done as outpatient procedures, with no incisions and a much quicker recovery.
Each patient is unique and will require a personalized treatment plan. Every effort is made to find the least invasive, most effective options for the individual patient. We can go over the specifics of our recommended treatment strategy for you after we have an opportunity to review your issues, history and results from diagnostic testing.
