Vascular care comprises the diagnosis and comprehensive management of arterial and venous disorders of the cardiovascular system. Dr. Laurich is the Siouxland’s only Board Certified Vascular Surgeon with cutting-edge knowledge and superior skill in caring for patients with vascular disease.
The vascular system carries blood throughout your body and patients with vascular disease may experience blood flow issues that cause hip, leg or foot pain with walking, non-healing wounds, blood clots, aneurysms, stroke and other vascular issues. The experience Dr. Laurich brings to the region encompasses specialized care for aortic aneurysms, carotid artery disease, varicose veins and venous insufficiencies, arterial insufficiencies, wound healing, and more.
Midlands Vascular has a patient-centered focus, identifying the optimal plan of care for each patient to meet their needs with the most advanced care options available. Most options involve minimally invasive same-day endovascular procedures, however, the full spectrum of surgical options are available, as well.

Carotid disease: Narrowing in the arteries that carry blood to the brain, a major cause of stroke.
Venous Disease: Full spectrum of Varicose Vein treatments.
