Welcome to the Highpoint Health Vascular Center for the evaluation and treatment of peripheral vascular, cerebrovascular and venous diseases and abnormalities. Located on the second floor of the hospital, the Vascular Center is staffed by General/Vascular Surgeons Michael McAndrew, M.D. and Mark McAndrew, M.D. and Vascular Surgeons Patrick Muck, M.D. and Matthew Recht, M.D., in addition to professional and ancillary personnel.
Our Vascular Center is designed to care for patients with an abnormal artery and/or vein diagnosis for any area of the body with the exception of the heart. Among the more common reasons patients come to the Highpoint Health Vascular Center include blocked or narrowed arteries in the arms and/or legs, abdominal aneurysms, blood clots and clogged carotid arteries in the neck.

As a patient, you will be examined by one of our four surgeons and all necessary diagnostic tests will be ordered or performed. Once a diagnosis is determined, a therapeutic plan of treatment is established which may include surgery. Depending upon the type of procedure required and other contributing factors, the surgery may be performed at Highpoint Health or Good Samaritan Hospital (in Cincinnati). All four of the Center's surgeons are credentialed to perform vascular surgery at either hospital.
Our team of surgeons will also work closely with your primary care or referring physician to institute a comprehensive plan of care extending from diagnosis through recovery and follow-up. You will not need to travel to multiple locations or worry about scheduling appointments. In many cases, your entire continuum of care can be provided at Highpoint Health.
