Vascular surgery is surgery to treat diseases of the vascular (arteries and veins) system. It is a medical specialty that evolved from general and cardiac (heart) surgery.

Vascular surgeons are trained in the diagnosis and management of diseases affecting all parts of the vascular system, except of the heart—which is handled by cardiothoracic surgeons—and the brain, which is handled by neurosurgeons.

Most, but not all, vascular diseases fall under two general categories: peripheral venous disease and peripheral artery disease.

Through a team approach, Oregon Heart & Vascular Institute at RiverBend offers a variety of diagnostic tests, procedures and surgeries to help patients with vascular diseases. Contact us at the number above to learn more about the comprehensive services and exceptional patient care available.
