Vascular surgery

Vascular surgery

Our vascular surgeons treat diseases of the vascular system, which affect the veins and arteries. The anatomy of the vascular system includes aorta, carotid arteries, capillaries, femoral, iliac and tibial arteries. Vascular diseases block or weaken the blood vessels and damage the vein’s valves, thereby restricting the blood flow. This can result in damage to body parts and organs.

Vascular diseases are caused by a build of plaque made of fat or cellular waste, blood clots, inflammation and trauma of blood vessels. Vascular diseases link to other body systems and show up as renal vascular diseases, abdominal vascular diseases, lymphatic vascular diseases, thoracic vascular diseases, coronary vascular disease and cerebrovascular diseases. Some examples of vascular diseases are varicose veins, deep vein thrombosis, aortic aneurysm, heart attack, chest pains and lymphedema.

The surgical procedures for vascular diseases involve improving the blood vessel and lymphatic system conditions. It comprises of medication, minimally-invasive catheter assisted procedure and reconstruction. Our vascular surgeons also offer transplant surgery, open aortic surgery, dialysis access surgery and sclerotherapy to name a few.
