Vascular surgery

The diagnosis and surgical treatment of vascular conditions affecting your arteries, veins and lymphatic system. It does not include the arteries in your heart.

About vascular surgery

Our leading vascular surgeons treat a range of conditions affecting your arteries, veins and lymphatic system, including carotid artery disease and varicose veins.

They work closely with sonographers, who do a test called a Doppler ultrasound, to map your blood vessels and diagnose vascular conditions.

With this detailed information, the surgical team can treat your specific condition with minimally invasive surgery and precisely targeted treatments.

Some conditions of the vascular and lymph system can be serious and even fatal, so early diagnosis and treatment are important.

Our specialist teams are highly skilled in detecting early signs of vascular disease. These conditions include abdominal aortic aneurisms, which tend to affect men over the age of 60, and carotid artery disease which can lead to stroke.
