The Division of Vascular Surgery at URMC is one of the world’s foremost centers for vascular surgery, offering treatment for the full range of arterial (artery), venous (vein) and peripheral vascular disorders.
Our vascular surgeons are board-certified and offer the full spectrum of surgical care for patients with vascular disease, including the most advanced endovascular treatment.
We have an advanced, accredited noninvasive vascular laboratory. Here we perform noninvasive evaluations and diagnoses of the veins and arteries in your arms, legs, head and stomach.
These tests are critical to an accurate diagnosis and, ultimately, the best plan of treatment. They include:
- Doppler Testing. Color doppler testing is used to assess blood flow. The doppler device sends sound waves into your leg. The sound waves move through your leg tissue and a computer translates the sound waves into an image on a video screen. The image allows us to watch the blood flow through your veins and arteries, and make it possible for us to see plaque, lesions, narrowing, clots and obstructions.
- Duplex/Doppler Ultrasound Exam. The duplex/doppler ultrasound test combines doppler and ultrasound technology to examine the blood flow in the major arteries and veins in the arms and legs with the use of ultrasound (high-frequency sound waves).
