The Blank Vascular Center
Vascular and Endovascular Surgery
The Carol and Jeffrey Blank Vascular Center at Abington Memorial Hospital is an outpatient facility dedicated to providing leading edge diagnosis, treatment, and education for patients with vascular conditions (diseases and disorders affecting the arteries and veins).
According to the American Heart Association, approximately eight million people are affected by peripheral artery disease (PAD), the most common of a series of vascular conditions. Nearly 75% will never exhibit symptoms, or mistake the symptoms for something else. Unfortunately, people with PAD are at higher risk for stroke or heart attack if the condition is left untreated (American Heart Association).

Our staff includes board certified vascular surgeons and interventional radiologists, a nurse practitioner, and dedicated nurses and technologists. Our interventional radiologists and surgeons use the most sophisticated technologies, often employing minimally invasive techniques to treat vascular problems. These less invasive methods result in fewer complications, less time spent in the hospital, and faster recoveries.
Our comprehensive medical/surgical and minimally invasive treatment includes:
For convenience, the center includes an onsite vascular laboratory, which - after an initial visit - allows patients to conveniently schedule testing and visiting their physician on the same day, insurance permitting.
The laboratory is accredited by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories (ICAVL). The laboratory's trained technologists use state-of-the-art, non-invasive procedures to detect various vascular conditions.
