Vascular Surgery

Founded at the inception of modern vascular surgery in the mid-1950s, the Department of Vascular Surgery at Cleveland Clinic has earned an international reputation for excellence in patient care, surgical results, and clinical research. Our members specialize in the diagnosis and management of carotid artery disease, aortic aneurysms, and poor circulation to the legs and the abdominal organs.

Much of our experience is in re-operative surgery for patients whose original operations have been performed elsewhere, and the department serves as a major referral center for these and other difficult cases throughout Ohio and the surrounding states of Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

Acting in close cooperation with the Section of Vascular Medicine (within the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine), cardiologists and radiologists, the Department of Vascular Surgery provides comprehensive services for all types of peripheral vascular disorders, including the new technology of catheter-based intervention as well as traditional surgical treatment for aneurysms and obstructive arterial disease.

This department conducts one of the largest post-graduate training programs in vascular surgery in the United States, and our academic work has been published in scientific journals throughout the world. Although the enormous volume of our activity is the hallmark of the department, we are proud that our reputation has been established one patient at a time.
