Vascular Services

Northside Vascular Surgery is the first program in Georgia and one of a few programs in the world to offer minimally-invasive robotic endovascular surgical procedures. Utilizing the state-of-the-art Magellan Robotic System, doctors are granted more control and precision while navigating catheters through smaller blood vessels in complex vascular procedures. This leads to higher procedural success rates and enables more patients to be treated by less invasive endovascular methods rather than traditional surgery.

Dr. Ricotta is an expert at diagnosing and treating a wide range of vascular disorders. Northside Vascular Surgery offers an office-based full spectrum vascular laboratory that provides ultrasound, duplex, and Doppler flow studies for arteries and veins. Treatment of vascular disease may include angiography, angioplasty, and/or stenting or surgical procedures to any and all of the blood vessels in the body. Benefits to patients include prompt access to diagnostic testing as well as consultation with a vascular specialist who performs both open surgery and minimally invasive endovascular procedures.

Other vascular services include:

  • Angiography
  • Peripheral Angioplasty
  • Endovascular Stent Placement
  • Rotational Atherectomy
  • Surgical Bypass
  • Vascular Ultrasound
  • Carotid Ultrasound
  • Doppler Flow Studies
  • Venous Ultrasound
At Northside Vascular Surgery we take pride in providing the highest level of care to our patients. Dr. Ricotta strongly believes in the continuity of care he provides for his patients with the assurance that all of their cardiovascular needs will be treated, with the most up to date modalities, to provide you with a long, healthy quality of life.
