Vascular surgery

We promote collaboration among the different specialties dedicated to providing comprehensive and interdisciplinary care to patients with atherosclerosis, the process in which fatty materials, cholesterol and other substances, collectively known as plaque, accumulate in the lining of an artery. When plaques become fragile and rupture, they cause blood clots that can block blood flow or break off and travel to another part of the body, causing a heart attack, limb loss or stroke.

Our hospital emphasis on collaboration has shown to greatly improve the care patients receive allowing both established and emerging diagnostic and therapeutic methods to be applied, increasing efficiency and reducing risks to patients. Multi-disciplinary team meetings and protocol development an important part of close partnership with specialties involved in the direct care of our vascular patients.
