About the Division of Vascular Diseases and Surgery

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.

What sets us apart?

Ohio State offers comprehensive general vascular disease and surgery services, from initial visit to diagnostic testing, interventional or minimally invasive endovascular treatments, open surgical
treatments and, most importantly, ongoing lifelong post-treatment care. Specialized care is available in these dedicated areas, in and around Columbus:

  • Ohio State Aortic Center
  • Complex and Routine Peripheral Vascular Disease
  • Comprehensive Wound Center
  • Minimally Invasive Treatment of Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)
  • Limb Preservation Program
  • Ohio State Total Vein Care
  • Fully accredited Vascular Ultrasound and Physiology Lab available at the Richard M. Ross Heart Hospital, Ohio State University Hospital East and Outpatient Care Upper Arlington.

On the education front, Ohio State will be adding a new training option that allows medical students to move directly into a vascular surgery residency following medical school. At the same time, the traditional training path of a general surgery residency followed by a vascular surgery fellowship will remain, giving physicians options based on their personal interests.
