What is vascular surgery?

Vascular surgery treats conditions that affect the arteries and veins. It's a highly specialised yet far-reaching area that covers cosmetic issues such as birthmarks and thread veins through to serious circulatory conditions that can lead to strokes and aneurysms.

We have specialist vascular surgery units at three of our HCA UK hospitals so you can benefit from access to the highest quality expertise.

The Vascular Centre at The Harley Street ClinicVascular Services at London Bridge Hospital and The Wellington Hospital's Vascular Unit offers an extensive range of surgical treatments, including tumour removal and surgery to unblock narrow arteries (endarterectomy).
