We use peripheral artery bypass surgery to restore adequate blood flow around blockages.
In this procedure we use one of your own veins, usually from the same leg, and connect it to an artery above the blockage and then again further below the blockage. If you don’t have a suitable vein to support high blood flow, we may use a synthetic graft as the bypass.
What to Expect
We typically do this surgery under a general anesthetic because it requires making incisions on your leg. Most patients experience a post-operative hospital stay of three to five days.
