The Polyclinic’s vascular surgery department specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases affecting arteries and veins. The Polyclinic vascular surgeons work hard to modify risk factors and minimize the need for invasive intervention. They offer the latest in minimally invasive procedures. The Polyclinic vascular surgeons also offer non-surgical treatment for varicose and spider veins.
Our vascular surgeons strive to educate patients and their caregivers on how to effectively manage vascular disease in order to reduce the impact it has on their lives.
Peripheral artery disease (PAD)
Many adults suffer from peripheral artery disease (PAD). Blockage in arteries to the legs can cause pain with walking. Many patients with PAD visit our vascular surgery department to have non-invasive procedures such as the SilverHawkÆ procedure. This procedure allows patients to return to exercise such as walking, running, mountain climbing and tennis – activities they once gave up because of the pain they used to feel.
