The University of Kansas Health System is home to the region's only dedicated vascular medicine program. Our team specializes in the diagnosis and management of vascular disease.
Vascular disease is a common problem that occurs when the blood vessels become narrowed or clogged by fatty or cholesterol deposits called plaque. This can lead to heart attacks, strokes, aneurysms and kidney problems. Rare conditions, such as birth defects, clotting disorders and genetic problems, can also cause vascular disease.
