Vascular Surgery

What Is Vascular Surgery?

The vascular system is a complex network that functions to move blood throughout the veins and arteries within the body. When blood flow becomes restricted or blocked, expert surgical care may be needed to improve vascular health or prevent the loss of a limb. At USMD Hospital at Arlington, vascular surgeons commonly perform advanced procedures to salvage limbs and treat other vascular conditions. The intricate nature of vascular surgery and limb preservation requires a sophisticated level of skill, training, and expertise.

Vascular Surgery And Limb Salvage

When a limb is affected by health conditions, trauma, or other concerns, vascular surgery may be necessary to save the limb and preserve its function. Vascular surgeons utilize intricate surgical techniques to repair (revascularize) the vessels and ensure blood flow and blood supply to the limb are both adequate. The skilled vascular surgeons who provide this form of advanced care at USMD Hospital at Arlington also perform limb reattachment procedures. These surgical specialists do everything possible to preserve or reattach a limb that has suffered from damage, disease, or trauma to help maintain the appearance and use of a limb. Vascular surgeons also perform limb amputation at our facility in cases where a limb cannot be saved.
