The UK HealthCare Vascular and Endovascular Surgery team offers a comprehensive array of treatment plans that varies from conservative management of the causes and risk factors of vascular disease to complex open and endovascular approaches. The types of vascular problems addressed include, but are not limited to: thoracic and abdominal aneurysms, carotid disease, renal artery disease and lower extremity arterial insufficiency. While both open and endovascular techniques are utilized for treatment of our patients, UK vascular surgery faculty are especially interested in translating the latest findings into minimally invasive surgical procedures for some of the most complicated cases in the region. UK houses an advanced and nationally certified vascular laboratory dedicated to ultrasound and imaging tests. Together with state-of-the-art computerized tomography and MRI technology, our vascular imaging capabilities enable the diagnosis and severity of vascular disease before any invasive procedure is undertaken. The vascular surgery faculty is actively involved in research pertaining to the development of endovascular techniques, acute mesenteric ischemia, effects of obesity on surgical outcome, and treatment of aneurysms. They are joined by basic and translational investigators with international recognition in developing preclinical models for studying the development and progression of abdominal aneurysms. The UK Vascular Surgery Vein Institute, located at UK Good Samaritan Hospital provides comprehensive management of venous disorders. A Wound Care Clinic is also offered at Good Samaritan Hospital.
