The Department of Vascular Surgery provides emergency and elective treatment for patients with conditions of the vascular system, excluding the cardiac system.
The vascular surgical service operates a dedicated ward for the care of vascular patients on Ward 6A at the John Radcliffe Hospital.
Many vascular conditions can now be treated in a less invasive manner, using interventional radiology. For some more complex conditions however, surgery is required.
Vascular disease affects the arteries and veins that carry blood throughout the body. These conditions include:
Conditions which involve the arteries, such as aortic aneurysms, are treated in a vascular specialist centre known as the 'hub' (see Thames Valley Vascular Centre link on left-hand side). Conditions which are less severe, such as varicose veins, can be treated in local hospitals so that patients do not have to travel far from home for treatment.
