Schedule an Appointment
You or your physician may give us a call to schedule your vascular surgery consultation or appointment.
Patients undergoing an elective procedure will need to have a COVID-19 test done 4-6 business days before their procedure. For your convenience, we opened a curbside COVID-19 Pre-Procedural Testing Center where you can have the test performed from your car The Center is located at N. Broadway and 8th Ave. N outside near SameDay Care. Your care team will schedule a time for you to have your test done at the Center. Testing samples are sent to Mayo Clinic for analysis and take about four to six business days for results. Patients will need to self-quarantine for the period of time between the test sample being collected and the date of their procedure. Thank you for taking this important step to protect yourself, our care team, and other patients.
This Center is specifically for patients scheduled for a procedure who do not have symptoms of COVID-19. Symptomatic patients can call Healthline at (406) 255-8400 or 1-800-252-1246.
Billings Clinic combines the expertise of board certified surgeons and interventional radiologists to provide comprehensive vascular care for patients in our region.
Specializing in traditional vascular medicine and surgery, these specialists also offer endovascular (within the blood vessel) procedures. These procedures are done from within the artery and are therefore done with only a small incision or no incision at all, and most do not require an overnight hospital stay.
See your primary care physician to determine if a vascular surgery referral is appropriate for you.
Vascular Surgery Procedures
Billings Clinic offers a team approach to care that combines the expertise of surgeons and interventional radiologists who specialize in the treatment of artery and vein disease.
We also provide vascular access for dialysis and a vein clinic, focused on therapeutic treatment for vein disease.
Our staff works closely with the Wound Care team.
Endovascular procedures are often minimally invasive and targeted toward arterial and venous intervention:
- Balloon angioplasty and stenting for peripheral arterial disease
- Treatment of critical limb ischemia (severe obstruction of arteries that markedly reduces blood flow)
- Abdominal aortic aneurysm repair
- Percutaneous atherectomy
- Declotting of dialysis access
Vascular Lab Location
Our vascular lab is located on the second floor of Billings Clinic. The vascular laboratory offers specialized diagnostic procedures including:
- Real time Doppler images of the carotid arteries
- Segmental pressures
- Exercise testing on upper and lower extremities
