- Vascular Surgery
Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.

Dr. Anker has treated my husband and me for the past 15 years. He is not only the best vascular surgeon but he is the best doctor we have seen. He is very knowledgeable and experienced. He is also very easy to talk to. He has maintained our leg circulation for all these years. We are so thankful to him and his staff and we recommend them highly!

I had a procedure attempted at a major Long Island Hospital to fix my left leg circulation. The vascular surgeon there couldn't do it. I then found Dr. Anker who easily cleared my blocked artery. He placed a stent which he did in a special room he has in his office. I am so thankful to Dr. Anker.
I have seen Dr. Anker many times in the past eight years. He is the most expert and down to earth doctor I know.

I can't say enough about Dr. Anker. Thanks to him I can walk again without any pain in my leg. He is a great doctor and a wonderful, caring person. The greatest thing is that my surgery was done in his office suite and was done with no general anesthesia, only mild sedation. I was able to walk out on my own after the surgery. Unbelievable. I give Dr. Anker my highest recommendation.
