Surgical Care Associates of Louisville
Experience sets us apart
According to the Society for Vascular Surgery, “Healthy arteries and veins are a matter of life and limb.” We hope you will entrust your vascular health to the artery and vein experts at Surgical Care Associates. Our full staff has been operating longer than any other practice in the state and is dedicated to the treatment of patients with disorders of the arteries and veins. Unlike other practices, our vascular specialist team, is uniquely trained and experienced to know how, and when, ALL forms of diagnosis and therapy should be performed. This includes not only advanced surgical bypass operations, but also medications, minimally invasive endovascular procedures such as:
- Balloon angioplasty
- Stents of all vascular beds including leg, renal and carotid arteries
- Stent grafts
Our in-depth experience separates us from some interventionalists who are only able to perform balloons or stents, and may be unable to manage the complications of these procedures.
Pioneers in the field
Drs. Bergamini, George, Liechty, Jung, Rachel, Scherrer, and Thomas are renowned vascular specialists having published dozens of peer reviewed scientific publications and multiple textbook chapters. They have presented their combined knowledge frequently at scientific meetings both in the region and nationally and have patents related to innovations in the field. They are also recognized thought leaders in the medical management of vascular disorders and have pioneered the minimally invasive treatment of aortic aneurysms, office based procedures, and laser treatment of varicose and spider veins. Our physicians are supported by a highly trained staff of professionals dedicated to the care of vascular patients.
