About Vascular Care

Advances in diagnosing and treating diseases of the circulatory or vascular system have significantly improved the health and quality of life of those who have been diagnosed with vascular disorders. However, many people don’t know they have vascular problems until they experience leg pain or other symptomor even after they attend one of Tanner’s peripheral artery disease (PAD) screenings.

Oxygenated blood is supplied to your body through an intricate network of blood vessels. These include arteries, which carry oxygenated blood to different parts of the body, and veins, which return oxygen-depleted blood to the heart and lungs as part of the vascular system. Problems can occur with the blood flow in this elaborate system of vessels, requiring specialized medical care.

Vascular surgery is a surgical specialty in which diseases of the vascular system, or arteries and veins, are managed by medical therapy, minimally-invasive catheter procedures and surgical reconstruction.

Vascular surgery also refers to any surgical procedure in which a catheter containing medications or miniature instruments is inserted percutaneously into a blood vessel for the treatment of vascular disease. This allows physicians to treat vascular disorders from inside the blood vessels. Although traditional open surgical methods are also used, most of today's endovascular procedures are minimally invasive — performed through a small puncture wound or incision—requiring less recuperation time.

Tanner's team of highly-trained vascular surgeons provide patients with complete vascular care, including:

  • Non-invasive vascular tests
  • Endovascular aortic aneurysm repair
  • Treatment for leg pain and peripheral vascular disease (PVD; also known as PAD)
  • Blood clots
  • Vascular surgery
