Vascular surgery is a specialty discipline in surgery that deals with diseases of the vascular system. This is the circulatory system in the body and it comprises the blood vessels, lymph vessels, and the lymphatic system. The blood vessels include the arteries, veins, and capillaries. The arteries carry blood away from the heart while the veins carry blood to the heart. The capillaries distribute oxygen-rich blood to the body. The Department of Vascular Surgery at Emirates Hospital focuses on effective diagnosis and treatment of damaged or diseased blood vessels, arteries, and veins.
Varicose veins surgery:
Varicose veins are swollen, twisted veins that you can simply see slightly below the surface of the skin on the legs. This condition can be treated with proper medical procedures and lifestyle changes. The ultimate objective of this treatment is to relieve symptoms, prevent complications and improve the overall appearance.
A varicocele is an enlargement of the veins in your scrotum. Varicocelectomy is a surgery performed to get rid of those enlarged veins. The procedure is completed to revive the correct blood flow to your reproductive organs.
Spider Veins: Spider veins are small, damaged veins appearing on the surface of legs or face. Sometimes known as thread veins, these complications can appear as blue, purple or red lines, webs, or branches that aren’t harmful at all but can be treated for cosmetic reasons.
Diabetic Foot Ulcer:
Foot ulcers are common complications of diabetes that aren’t being controlled through strategies like eating regimes, exercise, and insulin treatment. Treatment for diabetic foot Ulcers differs relying upon their causes.
Deep Vein Thrombosis:
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a serious condition that occurs when a blood clot forms in a vein located deep inside your body. A blood clot is a clump of blood that’s turned into a solid state. Deep vein blood clots typically form in your thigh or lower leg, but they can also develop in other areas of your body.
