Christopher LeSar

Medical Director
Vascular Institute of Chattanooga
Hixson, Tennessee


Board certified by the American Board of Surgery (ABS) and Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS), Dr. Chris LeSar is an experienced vascular surgeon working in the Chattanooga region for the last 14 years, specializing in vascular and minimally invasive endovascular techniques in both the inpatient, outpatient, and outpatient office setting.  He brings the depth of knowledge to the Vascular Institute with his intricate knowledge of advanced techniques for the treatment of carotid, mesenteric, renal, venous, and peripheral vascular disease. He has a special interest for the care of patients with critical limb ischemia. He performs procedures at Erlanger Hospitals -  Main and East Campus, Memorial Hospital, Parkridge Hospital, Tennova Cleveland and the VIC's Office Based Lab. 
My mission for my practice – Vascular Institute of Chattanooga - is to change the scope of practice and treatment of patients affected by critical limb ischemia (CLI), by reducing the number of unnecessary amputations. Through teaching and advocating for proper treatment and diagnosis, I truly feel that there is the ability to make a shift in care patterns, resulting in better outcomes for patients. I focus on my relationships to work with other specialists and “bridge the gap” to a comprehensive evaluation that lead to healthier patients living longer and fuller lives.
