No two patients are alike. The goal is to pro­vide excel­lent results with fast recov­ery, long term dura­bil­i­ty, and most impor­tant­ly, improve­ment in qual­i­ty of life. Although I am a strong advo­cate and pro­po­nent of min­i­mal­ly inva­sive endovas­cu­lar surgery, it is my duty to con­sid­er and assess all aspects of the patient in decid­ing the best sur­gi­cal approach.
