Endovascular surgery is a form of minimally invasive surgery in which treatment of vascular disease is done from inside the blood vessel. It is performed through tiny holes, rather than through large external incisions. When done so, procedures can often result in smaller scars, less pain and faster recovery times than traditional open methods.
