Contemplating our body's circulatory system (which supplies nourishment to all of the tissue located throughout our body) could be considered mundane, but disorders of the vascular system—especially the aorta—can be life threatening.
Disorders of the body's circulatory system can lead to loss of life and limb or a disabling stroke. Unfortunately, problems in circulation may not be discovered until one of these events occurs. And that’s why each of the experienced members of MedStar Georgetown University Hospital’s Vascular Diseases Program emphasizes prevention and early detection of circulatory problems.
When a problem is discovered, we offer a wide range of treatment options based on our clinical experience and academic research involving a wide variety of vascular disorders. We utilize the extensive resources of one of the finest hospitals in the area to offer our patients and their families access to state-of-the-art care.
Our physicians are specialized in the diagnosis and treatment of vascular disease and are internationally recognized vascular specialists who provide comprehensive care—from medical and rehabilitative therapies to minimally invasive endovascular and open surgical procedures.
