Dr. Sanjeev Pradhan grew up in Wisconsin and now makes the Chicago area home, living in Orland Park. Dr. Pradhan designed a unique hybrid vascular surgery suite which integrates advanced imaging techniques with a traditional operating room setting, and was the first surgeon in the Chicago area to use fenestrated stents to treat abdominal aortic aneurysms. Dr. Pradhan joined Vascular Specialists in 2015.
Dr. Pradhan performs procedures for hemodialysis access, peripheral artery disease, venous disease, carotid artery disease and aneurysm disease with both open and endovascular methods, with a particular interest in minimally invasive treatment of aneurysms. He was the first Chicago surgeon to use a fenestrated stent to fix an aortic aneurysm that involved the renal arteries. Dr. Pradhan has a patient-centered bedside manner and shares with Dr. Tanquilut the philosophy of providing excellent service to his patients, referring physicians and community.
“Vascular surgery is a fascinating mix of medicine and very sophisticated, technically challenging surgeries. I get a real sense of pleasure that I am saving lives and limbs as a vascular surgeon. I am committed to using evidence-based medicine, the most recent published data and the best information available to care for our patients. I encourage patients to include family in our conversations and to discuss the pros and cons of each treatment. Age, advancement of the condition or disease, lifestyle and other factors are all considered as we talk about medicine, minimally invasive treatments or major surgery to arrive at the right decision for the patient.”
