Vascular Surgery Specialty Centers

Vascular Center

The Stony Brook Vascular Center, opened in 2015, is a spacious new facility that supports the growing clinical practice of our vascular surgeons.

The Vascular Center is conveniently located in Nicolls Professional Park at 23 South Howell Avenue, Suite G — just off Middle Country Road in Centereach, NY, where it intersects with Nicolls Road (see map).

The facility is complete with on-site procedure rooms, plus an angiography room. It serves as the home of our Aortic Center, Center for Vein Care, Hemodialysis Access Center, and Limb Preservation Center.

Our new office is designed to offer our patients clinical evaluation with the most advanced diagnostic tests and state-of-the-art procedure rooms for minimally invasive office-based procedures.

About the Vascular Center, Apostolos K. Tassiopoulos, MD, professor of surgery and chief of vascular and endovascular surgery, says:

"Our new office is designed to offer our patients clinical evaluation with the most advanced diagnostic tests and state-of-the-art procedure rooms for minimally invasive office-based procedures.

Aortic Center

The Stony Brook Aortic Center provides the most focused solution to a patient's aortic disease. Our multidisciplinary team of physicians includes specialists in cardiac imaging, cardiovascular medicine, anesthesiology, cardiothoracic surgery, and vascular surgery, who work closely with each other, and with patients' referring physicians.

The Aortic Center, which is closely allied with the Stony Brook University Heart Institute, is Suffolk County's only facility offering patients comprehensive and coordinated care for the full range of aortic conditions. Our sophisticated technologies — in the hands of our specialists — help define aortic problems and the optimal treatment plan.

The Aortic Center's physicians are experienced in treating patients with co-existing conditions and other high-risk factors. They offer diagnosis and treatment for all aortic diseases, including:

  • Ascending, arch and descending thoracic aortic aneurysms.
  • Thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms.
  • Abdominal aortic aneurysms.
  • Acute and chronic type A and B aortic dissections.
  • Aortic root and valve disease.
  • Native aortic and prosthetic graft infections.
  • Aortoiliac occlusive and thromboembolic disease.
  • Congenital aortic disease.
  • Mesenteric and renal aneurysmal and occlusive disease.

Our minimally invasive interventions allow us to treat a wider spectrum of patients, with shorter hospital stays, and fewer postoperative complications.

We are committed to providing patients with an appointment within 1 week of referral from their physician, and expediting the delivery of care.

Center for Vein Care

The Center for Vein Care, with several offices in Suffolk and Nassau counties as well as in Manhattan, provides treatment for varicose and spider veins of the leg. Our vein specialists are board-certified vascular surgeons and full-time faculty of Stony Brook Medicine.

Our specialists use the latest surgical and non-surgical techniques to treat vein disease, including new minimally-invasive techniques that let patients get back to their normal activities in usually just a couple of days. No general anesthesia or hospitalization is required.

Our specialists provide care that's tailored to each patient's individual needs. Most of all, they are dedicated to giving patients the care they need to have legs that not only feel better but look better, too. Restoring legs to their healthy, pain-free good looks is what we do with pride.
