Cutting-Edge Treatment for Vascular Diseases
Vascular disease includes any condition that affects the blood vessels, and it can cause various health issues depending on what part of the body is affected. For example, a vascular problem in the carotid artery can lead to a stroke, while one in the heart can cause a heart attack. Patients at risk for vascular disease include those with high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes, as well as current and former smokers.
Minimally Invasive Vascular Surgery
Up to 90% of procedures performed by Dr. Khan are minimally invasive, which means a quicker, easier recovery for patients. Common vascular conditions treated include aneurysms, carotid artery blockages, kidney failure/dialysis, peripheral artery disease, mesenteric ischemia (restricted blood flow to the small intestine) and varicose veins. Dr. Khan is also well-versed in the latest innovative procedures, such as trans-carotid artery revascularization (TCAR), a minimally invasive procedure to treat carotid artery disease and help prevent future strokes, and customized stents to repair complex aneurysms without compromising vital blood flow to the body’s organs.
Dr. Khan completed his medical degree at King Edward Medical University, an internship at Yale New Haven Hospital and his vascular surgery residency at the University of Buffalo. He served as a research fellow at New York-Presbyterian, and his research has been published in prominent medical journals. Dr. Khan’s prior experience includes hospital leadership roles in surgery and vascular surgery.
