What is Vascular Surgery?
Vascular surgery diagnoses and treats arterial, venous and lymphatic diseases such as, varicose veins, Raynaud’s and heart failure. Many vascular conditions can be treated without surgery, radiology or other invasive procedures. At BMI Alexandra Hospital, we offer a range of surgical and non-surgical vascular procedures carried out by experienced consultant vascular surgeons.
Our vascular consultants will provide you with a full clinical assessment at your initial consultation as well as discussing the treatment options available.
The majority of vascular procedures carried out at the hospital are minimally invasive and are performed under local anaesthetic. This helps to minimise bruising, improve patient comfort and reduce recovery time allowing you to return to work and normal activities.
