What to expect with endovascular and vascular surgery

Our team of vascular specialists design a personalized treatment plan specific to the patient’s severity of condition, medical history and other risk factors. Patients undergoing endovascular procedures are usually discharged within twelve to twenty-four hours, and typically experience full recovery and improvement of symptoms within three to five days. Patients undergoing vascular surgery on average take two to three weeks to fully recover. Your care team will provide education for you and your support system on postoperative restrictions including activities and time away from work while you are recovering.

We encourage participation in our cardiac rehabilitation program during your while you recover, and can help you make arrangements for these services prior to your discharge home.

At three, six- and nine-months post-surgery, you will have follow-up appointments with your specialist. At one year, visits will become less frequent and your primary care provider or cardiologist can continue your follow-up care.
