Keeping Your Arteries & Veins Healthy
Vascular surgery is a surgical specialty that treats conditions that affect your vascular system. Your vascular system includes your arteries and veins.
Vascular surgeons use medical treatments, minimally-invasive catheter procedures, and surgery to make sure your arteries and veins stay healthy.
The vascular surgery specialists at University of Utah Health offer the best care specifically tailored to treat each patient. We are the number one referral center for treating a broad range of vascular diseases. We see patients from Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Nevada, and Montana. Our work through outreach clinics provides patients with easier access to our services.
Our vascular surgeons have access to leading-edge operating room suites. Doctors use the hybrid OR suite for patients who need highly specialized procedures which require both operative and angio procedures.
Vascular surgery is committed to treating our patients with the compassion, integrity, and respect they deserve.
