Vascular Surgery works with the body's network of blood vessels (arteries, veins and capillaries) that carry blood to and from the heart. When this blood circulation is restricted, some level of vascular disease occurs. The onset of vascular diseases is not rare, becomes more common with age and can be serious. Certain factors such as heredity, pregnancy, long periods of standing still, diabetes, high cholesterol, smoking, and obesity increases ones likelihood of vascular diseases.
Vascular Surgery screens for stroke, abdominal aortic aneurysm, and peripheral artery disease and is conveniently located on Valley Medical Center's main campus.
