They perform minimally invasive endovascular as well as open surgical procedures to treat problems affecting arteries and veins.  In Upstate New York, Dr. Mehta and Dr. Paty are considered pioneers in vascular techniques, education, and research.  Over the past 15 years, they have served patients in communities of the greater Capital Region and performed nearly 25,000 vascular procedures in treating peripheral artery disease, thoracic & abdominal aortic aneurysms & dissections, carotid stenosis for stroke prevention, varicose veins, and dialysis access needs.

 “Our mission is to provide the highest quality of vascular care through education, awareness, innovation, and research, which is in solidarity with CCP’s values. At the core of Vascular Health Partners, establishing relationships with our patients, advocating for each person, and ensuring the best outcomes are of utmost importance,” said Dr. Manish Mehta, Director of Vascular Health Partners of Community Care Physicians  “We have a longstanding track record of delivering the highest quality of care, and have developed numerous education and awareness programs including the Vascular Roundtable, V-Aware, Vascular International Academy, and Vascular Techniques and Technology Think-tank.  We have led innovation through being the principal investigators in nearly 50 national and international clinical trials, and have let evidence guide us in shaping therapy for our patients.”

Dr. Philip Paty added, “Both Dr. Mehta and I are strongly committed to our patients first. We offer the full spectrum of minimally invasive endovascular procedures and complex open surgical procedures for the treatment of vascular disease. Endovascular procedures have had a significant impact in reducing patient morbidity and mortality.  Having the highest quality expertise in all aspects of vascular care allows us to offer endovascular solutions for complex vascular disease and offer open surgical procedures when necessary.  The ideal circumstance is for both Endovascular and Open Procedures to be performed with the highest competence and chance for success. Over the last ten years, we have taken the lead role in shaping vascular techniques to benefit our patients.”

A key component of Vascular Health Partners is the Noninvasive Vascular Laboratory, on-site in both Queensbury and Gloversville. Noninvasive testing of arteries and veins allows patients to be examined using Doppler ultrasound and other techniques without the risks and discomforts of injections and/or other invasive tests. These tests allow the diagnosis of almost all known or suspected vascular problems. These tests can often determine the severity of the problems and the need for any subsequent treatment. Noninvasive testing for the following can be performed on-site: Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), Aortic Aneurysms, Peripheral Arterial Aneurysm, Cerebrovascular Disease, Mesenteric Arterial Disease, Renal Artery Disease, Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT), Chronic Venous Disease, Dialysis Access planning and follow-up.
