Our practice focuses on cardiac, thoracic and vascular surgery. We offer a complete range of surgeries within these specialties using the latest techniques and technologies of open, minimally invasive and noninvasive procedures.
The vascular division specializes in the treatment of peripheral arterial and venous diseases. We offer surgery and minimally invasive treatment options for the carotid artery, abdominal and thoracic aneurysms, occlusive disease of the upper and lower extremity arteries and venous problems including varicose veins.
Advanced techniques, including laser and mechanical atherectomy and ultrasound-accelerated catheter directed thrombolysis, are available. Through a partnership with the hyperbaric medicine experts at the Wound Healing Center, we offer a multidisciplinary approach to critical limb ischemia and non-healing wounds.
- Abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (AAA)
- Angioplasty of kidney arteries and mesenteric vessels
- Bypass surgery for limb salvage
- Carotid endarterectomy
- Carotid stenting and angiography
- Critical limb ischemia and non-healing wounds
- Endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair using stents, grafts, angioplasty
- Endovascular peripheral angiography
- Endovascular radiofrequency obliteration of saphenous vein reflux (ERFO)
- Endovascular renal arteriography and angioplasty
- Endovascular transluminal angioplasty
- Laser and mechanical atherectomy
- Medical management of vascular disease
- Operative ultrasonography
- Peripheral vascular disease
- Stenting procedures for leg pain and limb salvage
- Ultrasound-accelerated catheter directed thrombolysis
- Venous surgery for venous disorders and varicose veins, including the VNUS® procedure
The cardiothoracic division specializes in the surgical treatment of heart disease, including coronary artery disease, structural valve disease, heart arrhythmias and disorders of the aorta. We also surgically manage benign and malignant diseases of the lungs, esophagus, chest wall and mediastinum.
We offer minimally invasive approaches for both cardiac and thoracic surgeries, leading to less pain and shorter hospital stays. This includes minimally invasive approaches for coronary and heart valve surgery, as well as Video-Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS) and Robotic-Assisted Surgery for general thoracic disorders.
Our expertise in valve-sparing heart surgery helps patients with leaking heart valves and aneurysms to keep their own valves when possible, thereby avoiding complications associated with artificial valve replacement and blood-thinning medications. Transmyocardial laser revascularization (TMR), now available at Spartanburg Medical Center, can treat heart disease untreatable by stents or bypass surgery.
- "Bloodless" heart bypass surgery
- Aortic valve reconstruction and replacement
- Atrial fibrillation
- Cancers of the lung, esophagus and chest wall
- Catheter-based therapies for treating blood clots to the lungs
- Congenital heart disease, heart arrhythmias and disorders
- Congestive heart failure
- Diseases of the diaphragm
- Endovascular surgery for aortic aneurysms of the chest and abdomen
- Minimally invasive heart surgery, including robotic and rib resection methods
- Minimally invasive lung surgery including robotic and video assisted thoracic surgery (VATS)
- Mitral valve reconstruction and replacement
- Placement of pacemaker and LV lead replacement
- Transmyocardial laser revascularization (TMR)
- Tumors of the mediastinum

Bloodless medicine is a means of providing medical care while eliminating or reducing the need for blood transfusions. Bloodless techniques and strategies make it possible to perform some of the most complicated surgeries –everything from joint replacement to heart bypass – with minimal blood loss and a lower likelihood of blood transfusion.

Physician referral is recommended for cardiac, thoracic and most vascular surgeries. Varicosity, leg numbness or leg pain can be self-referred.
