LEARN ABOUT VASCULAR SURGERY

Vascular surgery is the treatment of diseases of the arteries and veins.  Surgery is indicated when a patient is diagnosed with vascular disease and cannot be treated by less invasive, non-surgical treatments.

The purpose of vascular surgery is to treat diseases of the arterial, venous, and lymphatic systems (excluding the intracranial and coronary arteries). Arterial disease is a condition in which blood clots, arteriosclerosis, and other vascular conditions occur in the arteries. Venous disease involves problems that occur in the veins. Some vascular conditions occur only in arteries, others occur only in the veins, and some affect both veins and arteries.
