Superior Vascular Care
Beebe Healthcare offers expertise in vascular disease, testing, and surgery. The program was founded at Beebe in 1989 by Mayer Katz, MD. Today's Beebe Vascular team includes board certified and fellowship trained vascular surgeons and specialized nurse practitioners.
Construction at the Margaret H. Rollins Lewes Campus will add a new state-of-the-art hybrid operating room - the only of its kind in Sussex County. Learn more.
Vascular surgery is an integral component of Beebe's Cardiac & Vascular Services program. It includes vascular diagnostic testing and other vascular nonsurgical procedures. Beebe Healthcare also offers a Vein Center, where venous disease can be diagnosed and treated. Beebe Vein Center provides information about varicose veins, spider veins, and other types of venous disease.
First in Region to Provide TCAR
Beebe Healthcare's vascular team is the first in the region to provide transcarotid artery revascularization (TCAR). This innovative procedure reduces the risk of stroke for patients who need to have carotid artery surgery. For patients who are at risk for stroke, traditional carotid surgeries like carotid endarterectomy and stenting carry increased risk of stroke during the procedure.
TCAR uses a special transcarotid neuro-protection system, which allows the surgeon to directly access the common carotid artery in the neck and initiate temporary blood flow reversal. By reversing the blood flow quickly during the procedure, the patient’s brain is protected from a stroke.The filtered blood is then returned through a second catheter which flows into the patient’s upper leg. Once the stent is placed successfully, the blood flow is returned to normal.
“TCAR is an innovative procedure that allows surgeons to provide better patient care. During a TCAR, we do not need to navigate catheters through the aortic arch, which can lead to stroke,” said Sean Ryan, MD, of Beebe Vascular. “In addition, any fragments of plaque released during the procedure are safely filtered out. Offering this new minimally invasive option for our patients will dramatically reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack during and after carotid interventions.”
We are here to serve you in several locations. Please call our Lewes location to schedule appointments because our physicians are not at all locations on all days.
