Taking care of your vascular health.
Knoxville Hospital & Clinics provides patients with skilled vascular surgeons who diagnose and treat a variety of vascular conditions including abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysms, carotid artery stenosis, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), peripheral arterial disease (PAD), varicose veins, venous disease, and any other vascular-related disorder.
Vascular surgeons are specialists highly trained to treat diseases of the vascular system, also called the circulatory system. Your blood vessels - arteries carrying oxygen-rich blood and veins carrying blood back to the heart - are the roadways of your circulatory system. Without smoothly flowing blood, your body cannot function. Additionally, conditions like hardening arteries create "traffic jams" in your circulatory system, obstructing the flow of blood to the body.
Vascular surgeons utilize a variety of surgical techniques and procedures to repair damaged or partially-blocked blood vessels. In addition, they see and treat many patients who don’t require surgery because you can treat many vascular problems with medication or exercise.
