Division of Vascular Surgery

The Division of Vascular Surgery at the University of Rochester provides comprehensive vascular care for patients with all stages and types of peripheral circulatory disease, from diagnosis and treatment to medical management of disease.  Our vascular surgeons specialize in open, hybrid, and minimally invasive endovascular procedures to diagnosis and treat aneurysms, blocked arteries, blood clots, varicose veins, as well as compromised blood flow to the brain, intestines, and kidneys.  Treatments for vascular disease depend on the type, location, and severity of the condition.  

Our team offers multidisciplinary care as we work with patients to understand the benefits and risks of each treatment option, while coordinating consultations with specialists including cardiac surgery, nephrology, cardiology, to provide a seamless experience for patients and their families.

Our Mission

  • To provide expert, individualized clinical care to all patients
  • To improve our ability to care for patients through clinical and basic science investigation
  • To support innovation and application of new technologies to improve patient outcomes
