Vascular And Endovascular Surgery​

What is Vascular And Endovascular Surgery​

The vascular system, also known as the circulatory system, consists of a complex network of veins and arteries carrying blood and lymph through the body. The vascular system delivers oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the tissues, feeding and nourishing cells while carrying away waste materials. When certain parts of the vascular system gets blocked, the heart gets deprived of oxygen, resulting in problems ranging from hypertension to heart failure or heart attacks, leg cramps, stroke and more. Using a range of treatments such as laser therapy, local excision, stenting or grafting, our vascular surgeons correct problematic vessels using precise techniques acquired through years of experience.
