World Class Care
MaineHealth offers the most advanced vascular surgery services in Maine—both open and endovascular. Our team of highly-skilled specialists includes cardiologists, vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists, and diagnostic radiologists working together to evaluate and treat each patient. Vascular surgery includes treatment for thoracic aortic aneurysms, abdominal aortic aneurysms, and aneurysms of the arteries.
Our vascular services staff is committed to continuous improvement. To aid in this effort, we subscribe to nine national registries that allow us to benchmark our performance against peers across the U.S. including: Carotid Artery Stent; Carotid Endarterectomy; Endovascular AAA Repair; Lower Extremity Amputation; Infra-inguinal Bypass; Supra-inguinal Bypass; Open AAA; Peripheral Vascular Intervention; and Thoracic and Complex EVAR (including Endovascular Thoracic Stenting and treatment for penetrating aortic ulcers and dissections). Another important aspect of our vascular care quality standards is a commitment to seeing each patient at a long-term follow-up visit, 9-21 months after one of these procedures.
Patients are treated in state-of-the-art facilities, such as our cutting-edge hybrid operating suite, and have access to the most advanced treatments, including clinical trials of new medications, devices, and surgical techniques. Our programs include:
