Vascular surgery is dedicated to the care of patients with disorders of the circulatory system. These disorders fall
into two broad general disease processes known as atherosclerosis and thrombophlebitis, which affect the arterial and venous systems respectively.
In the past decade there have been numerous diagnostic and surgical technological advances such as: ultrasound enhancement, angioplasty, stenting devices, endoluminal bypasses, and improved imaging techniques.
The vascular disease process involves multiple systems of the body. As such, the care of the vascular patient requires the combined efforts of the surgeon, radiologist and internist. The physicians of Vascular Surgery are dedicated to providing the most up-to-date techniques in treating the vascular patient and is forging ahead in various areas of research to solve problems that only a few years ago were deemed unsolvable.
