Vascular Surgery encompasses operations and minimally invasive interventions to all areas of the vascular system. (This being both the arteries and veins.) The exceptions to this are the heart and intracranial vessels.
Minimally invasive procedures provide treatment for conditions that have been commonly treated with open surgery. These types of endovascular (inside the vessel) interventions offer minimal hospital stays and minimal recovery time.

WHERE WILL MY PROCEDURE BE PERFORMED?
I HAVE BEEN TOLD I'M HAVING A STENT - WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
A stent procedure is to treat a narrow or blocked blood vessel. Basically, you will have a small mesh tube inserted into a blood vessel to ensure that there is a good flow of blood through this vessel.
