Vascular surgeons treat several dangerous emergent and chronic conditions. Their expertise helps patients survive strokes, aneurysms, and other diseases of the blood vessels. There have been several exciting advances in the field which have made it possible for more patients to receive life-saving treatment.

Dr. Eric Fishman, a vascular surgeon affiliated with Greenwich Hospital, New York-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital, White Plains Hospital Center, and St. Joseph’s Medical Center, explains some of the newest innovations in vascular surgery that are pushing the boundaries of medical technology and helping more patients survive traumatic events.

“For two days a week, which is Monday and Tuesday, I am in the office the whole day seeing patients. I don’t do procedures or surgeries on those days unless there is an emergency. I work from 8-to-5 or 8-to-6, depending on the day. On Wednesday and Thursday, I do the bigger surgeries on the sicker patients, which are both done in the OPL (outpatient lab) office or in the hospital for the more serious procedures. Then on Friday, I see a couple of patients in the office, but most of the day is spent in the office doing vein procedures. I take off every third weekend on average.”

Vascular surgeons have an important role in protecting the health of people with blood vessel and lymphatic system disorders. Vascular surgeons treat conditions like aortic aneurysms, aortic dissection, blood clots, and deep vein thrombosis. They treat vascular conditions in most of the body, except the brain and heart.

“My vascular surgery practice is located in Purchase, New York. I have privileges at multiple hospitals in New York and Connecticut, including Saint Joseph’s Medical Center, Greenwich Hospital, White Plains Hospital Center, and New York-Presbyterian/Lawrence Hospital.

I work with patients who have serious problems with their blood vessels. Some of these issues include aortic aneurysms, carotid artery disease, aortic valve disease, blood clots, deep vein thrombosis, and lymphedema.”
