Vascular Care

Comprehensive care for your arteries and veins

Based out of UofL Health - Jewish Hospital, the physicians of Vascular Surgery Associates provide specialized treatments for vein, artery and circulation issues. Our expert team performs a full range of surgical and nonsurgical treatments, and their expertise can make the difference in your vascular care.

People with a vascular disease may or may not exhibit symptoms. For example, aneurysms rarely cause symptoms. However, there are other symptoms that should lead you to schedule an evaluation with our team. For instance, if you are experiencing pain, cramping or tiredness in your leg while exercising or walking stairs, you might have a peripheral artery disease. Identifying a vascular disease is the first step to treatment.

Early Detection is Important

Our commitment to “improved circulation” begins before any treatments, procedures or therapies. In an effort to prevent vascular events, like aneurysms or strokes, from occurring, UofL Health offers diagnostic vascular screenings at multiple facilities for just $50. Since vascular conditions do not always present with symptoms, a screening could help detect a problem before it occurs. Read more about our vascular screenings or call 502.587.4327 to schedule one.

Common Vascular Conditions

Our vascular specialists treat a wide range of conditions including:

  • Aneurysms - abnormal widening of a portion of an artery due to weakness in the blood vessel
  • Peripheral artery disease (PAD) - narrowing or blockage of the vessels that supply blood to the legs
  • Carotid artery disease (CAD) - narrowing or blockage of the vessels that supply blood to the brain
  • Messenteric ischemia - narrowing or blockage of the vessels that supply blood to the intestines
  • Renovascular conditions - narrowing or blockage of the vessels that supply blood to the kidneys
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) - blood clot that forms in a deep vein 

Included in the vascular care provided at UofL Health - Jewish Hospital are treatments for the aorta, the main artery in the human body that distributes oxygen-filled blood to all parts of the body and can require state-of-the-art treatment techniques. These latest treatments are available within the Aorta Center at UofL Health - Jewish Hospital. 

One of the latest innovations in heart and vascular care at UofL Health - Jewish Hospital is not a treatment, but rather a new operating room (OR), the first of its kind in Kentucky - a hybrid OR (pictured to the right). This new OR is multifunctional and can be used to treat many different types of heart and vascular conditions. The hybrid OR is a great benefit in treating patients with complex vascular diseases because its advanced imaging capabilities allow for more minimally invasive procedures.
