Advances in vascular surgery allow patients to receive more walk-in treatment than previously.
Vascular surgery is dedicated to the evaluation and treatment of diseases and conditions affecting arteries and veins. Patients count on the Vascular Surgery Department to provide diagnostic, medical and therapeutic services for vascular difficulties.
The division’s clinical and educational programs are in constant evolution; its research has focused on clinical outcomes, on methods for improving care, and on the evaluation of new medical technology. Given the continued refinement of endovascular techniques, the MUHC is well placed to adapt to the new realities of vascular disease treatment. These include the demands of an ageing population, and the application of minimally invasive techniques to related treatments such as cardiac surgery.
The Vascular Surgery Division’s influence in adopting endovascular techniques has established it as an internationally recognized centre. Its skills and expertise provide the MUHC with vascular experts who can provide the best clinical support for patients with complex illness, particularly those caused by atherosclerosis.
Advances in vascular surgery allow patients to receive more walk-in treatment than previously, and the reliance on intensive care units (ICU) has been reduced. The division is a leader in gaining improved results while making efficient use of resources.
