Department of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery offer a wide range of services for the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to arterial, venous and lymphatic systems. Vascular surgery is a specialty of surgery in which diseases of the vascular system, or arteries and veins, are managed by medical therapy, minimally-invasive catheter procedures, and surgical reconstruction. Endovascular surgery is a rapidly advancing field, where the surgeon works via a needle puncture and is able to “recanalise” narrowed or blocked arteries, and prevent dangerously dilated arteries (aneurysms) from bursting by inserting an artificial artery inside the abnormal segment. The core activities of the vascular specialist include:

  • Symptom relief from peripheral arterial and venous disease
  • Healing venous leg ulceration
  • Promoting cardiovascular health
  • Improving quality of life in patients with vascular disease
  • Multi-disciplinary management of the vascular complications of
  • diabetes and renal disease
  • Providing a renal access service for patients requiring hemodialysis
  • Preventing mortality from abdominal aortic aneurysm
  • Preventing stroke due to carotid artery disease
  • Preventing irreversible damage to the limbs
