Caring for you as we would for ourselves

Vascular surgery

Vascular surgery is the surgical discipline that deals with all vessels in the body, excluding intracranial vessels and heart vessels (coronary arteries), which fall under cardiac surgery. This advanced field involves arterial surgery and venous surgery.

Medical conditions

We deliver the highest level of surgical care and post-operative follow-up for medical conditions affecting the arteries, veins and lymphatic vessels.

Medical conditions

Vascular surgery mainly treats the following medical conditions:

  • peripheral artery disease, where arteries become narrowed or blocked
  • aneurysms, a bulge or dilation in the wall of an artery
  • varicose veins affecting the legs

Endovascular surgery

Endovascular surgery involves minimally-invasive treatment procedures, where catheters are inserted into the groin and carefully advanced along the path of the artery to the lesion. This innovative approach means that patients do not have to undergo open surgery. As a result, this technique offers extensive benefits for our patients, including:

  • Less pain after surgery
  • Better recovery
  • Shorter hospital stay
