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 7,942 outpatient visits and perform over 1,828 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.

Our Mission

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 be at the forefront of vascular innovation through translational research and clinical outcomes studies, and to provide state of the art vascular education to medical students, postgraduate trainees and vascular care providers.

About the Division of Vascular Diseases and Surgery

We see patients in Upper Arlington and at OSU East Hospital here in Columbus. We also have outreach clinics throughout central Ohio for ease of patient access. Our outreach clinics are held in Bellefontaine, Marysville, Upper Sandusky and Washington Court House.  We are proud of our personalized approach to each and every person we care for and perennially have one of the highest patient satisfaction ratings in the Medical Center.

In addition to general vascular surgical care, the Division is home to specialized care at the Aortic Center of Excellence, which offers comprehensive care for patients with thoracic, abdominal, and thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms, as well as our Vein Solutions clinic for treatment of varicose veins, venous insufficiency, congenital venous conditions, and other venous diseases. The Division also created and co-directs the Limb Preservation Program, a service line within the Comprehensive Wound Center that offers a multidisciplinary approach and advanced techniques to provide efficient and coordinated care for patients with lower extremity wounds related to trauma, diabetes and peripheral arterial disease. 

The Division is responsible for the vascular education of Ohio State’s medical students, general surgery residents, podiatry residents, and residents from other specialty programs, and is home to one of the oldest vascular surgery fellowships in the country. Graduates of our fellowship finish equipped to practice the full spectrum of vascular and endovascular surgery in a community or an academic setting.
