The Division of Vascular Surgery offers a full range
of minimally invasive procedures in the treatment of diseases of
arteries and veins affecting circulation, and operates as a regional
center for the treatment of complex vascular problems. Members of
the Division offer treatment of vascular disorders at The University
Hospital, University Pointe, The Christ Hospital, Jewish Hospital, and
the Veterans Affairs Medical Center. The Division
performs standard vascular procedures for abnormal enlargement of
arteries in the chest and abdomen, repair of previous aortic surgery,
and bypass to bring blood flow around blocked arteries in the leg.
Members of the Division have also been aggressive
in the use of endovascular techniques in the treatment of obstructed
and in traumatic injuries. The Division was one of the first academic
vascular practices in this country to develop a formal program
in endovascular surgery (a minimally invasive technique utilizing
stent, a wire mesh tube used to expand an artery) and remains
a recognized leader in the clinical applications of this rapidly
The Division is part of the new UC Heart & Vascular
Center which includes cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons and
to diagnose and treat cardiovascular and peripheral vascular diseases.
