Coastal Vein and Vascular Specialists has developed a custom and unique program to prevent amputation. This program has been pioneered by CVVS’s founding surgeon, Dr. Christopher Boyes. Dr. Boyes has spent the majority of his career researching and developing methods to mitigate the need for surgical amputation at his prior position as an academic vascular surgeon with Sanger Heart and Vascular Institute at Atrium Health in Charlotte, North Carolina.
At Sanger, he ran a research team and data base that was dedicated to researching amputation prevention. He has authored several papers and is a nationally recognized speaker on the subject of amputation prevention. Dr. Boyes specializes in treating the most complex of all Peripheral Artery Disease cases. Many of his patients have been told by other physicians that they need an amputation. Dr. Boyes sees these no-hope patients as a second opinion and many times is able to save them from an amputation through this unique amputation prevention program.
