Vascular surgery focuses on the treatment of diseases and disorders of the blood vessels in your limbs. Vascular surgeons are specially trained in the diagnosis, treatment, and medical management of these conditions. These surgeons complete five years of general surgical training and an additional one to two years of fellowship training in vascular disease. Upstate University Hospital’s Vascular Surgery & Endovascular Services team provides care to patients throughout the greater central New York area, at Upstate University Hospital, and through our many satellite offices.
Vascular Surgery & Endovascular Services also directs Upstate University Hospital’s accredited Vascular Laboratory. The lab is used to perform noninvasive ultrasound imaging tests to help detect obstructed arteries or veins. This provides physicians with valuable information to assist in planning early treatment. These tests are noninvasive, safe, and painless.
