Vascular Surgery

Board-certified vascular surgeons at The University of Kansas Health System diagnose and treat vascular diseases affecting the arterial, venous and lymphatic systems exclusive of the heart and brain. We offer comprehensive vascular care to our patients, delivering excellence with state-of-the-art technology.

Early treatment saves lives

 

The vascular system includes a network of veins and arteries that supply blood throughout the body. When normal circulation through this system of blood vessels is disrupted, serious injury can result. With proper evaluation, diagnostic imaging, conservative therapy, intervention or advanced surgical treatment, our vascular surgeons will decide the best treatment plan for you or your family member.

Vascular surgery conditions

Vascular disease, a common problem of blood circulation, affects both men and women and is more likely to occur as you age. The blood vessels become narrowed or clogged by fatty or cholesterol deposits called plaque. This can cause several health issues including heart attack, stroke, aneurysms or kidney problems. Vascular disease can be caused by other rare conditions too, such as birth defects, clotting disorders and genetic problems that create thick artery walls.

Team approach to patient care

Working with a team of cardiologists, neurologists and interventional radiologists, our specialty-trained surgeons offer comprehensive, individualized treatment plans for the following conditions:
