Vascular Surgery


Welcome to the Division of Vascular Surgery at SIU Medicine. Our board-certified vascular surgeons are highly trained experts in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the arteries and veins.

We help people living with conditions like aortic aneurysms, carotid artery disease, peripheral vascular disease and varicose veins. We use a combination of minimally invasive techniques, surgical reconstruction and drug therapies to enhance patient outcomes.

Vascular care is a rapidly growing field, and the providers at SIU Medicine make regular contributions with leading-edge research activities and advanced medical training for future providers.
