Providing state-of-the-art vascular care
The Division of Vascular Diseases and Surgery specializes in the comprehensive care of diseases of the arteries, veins and lymphatic system. Faculty in the division see over 7,100 outpatient visits and perform over 1,500 endovascular cases and major open vascular surgeries yearly. We specialize in complete care for any vascular condition, from a patient’s initial visit, to diagnostic testing, interventional or minimally invasive endovascular treatments (such as stenting and angioplasty), open surgical treatments (such as bypass surgery), and most importantly, ongoing lifelong post-treatment care.
The mission of the Division of Vascular Diseases and Surgery is to deliver the highest quality of care to vascular patients throughout Ohio and the surrounding regions, to discover innovations in medicine through translational research and clinical outcomes studies, and to educate medical students, postgraduate trainees and vascular care providers.
