What is vascular medicine and vascular surgery?

Vascular surgeons specialise in the care of your circulatory system – blood vessels and lymph system – outside of your heart. The Wesley Hospital’s vascular specialists provide co-ordinated evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the arteries and veins. We use state-of the art technology, including ultrasound scanning, angiography, surveillance of surgical bypass grafts, and dialysis graft surveillance.

If you are diagnosed with a vascular condition, for example a blockage in a vein or veins, surgery can reduce your risk of developing other serious health problems such as a heart attack. Successful vascular surgery can also result in:

  • A better quality of life.
  • Improved blood flow and wound healing.
  • Improved levels of mobility.
  • Reduced levels of pain and swelling.
  • Reduced risk of stroke and aneurysm rupture.
  • Reduced risk of amputation.
