Vascular Surgery

Vascular surgery is a specialty of surgery in which diseases of the vascular system, or arteries and veins, are managed by medical therapy, minimally-invasive catheter procedures, and surgical reconstruction. The Baton Rouge Clinic has a board-certified vascular surgeon Glen J. Schwartzberg, MD, FACS who is trained to treat a variety of conditions that block or partially block blood vessels to the point that an organ or a limb is at risk.

Our surgeon can diagnose, treat and manage diseases affecting all parts of the vascular system, with the exception of the heart and the brain. 

More specifically, our surgeon is skilled in the minimally-invasive placement of stints, endovascular sleeves, and endovascular surgery that actually reduces arteriosclerotic plaque burden.

Below is a list of some of the vascular conditions our surgeon treats:
