Vascular surgeons treat disorders of the arteries, veins and lymphatics.  Expertise for open and endovascular management is available in the department. In addition, we work with a multidisciplinary team comprising of Orthopedics, Urology, Rheumatology, Endocrinology, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Diagnostic and interventional radiology, Cardiology and Neurology. 

We emphasize early detection of vascular disease, and recommend minimally invasive procedures only when indicated.  Our non-invasive Vascular Laboratory performs testing for the detection of disease of the aorta and lower extremities- ABPI, Toe pressure, TCPO2, Compression therapy, Duplex ultrasound.
