Vascular Surgery

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

Vascular conditions affect the veins and arteries in your body, which conduct oxygen to every living cell. Think of your veins and arteries as expressways or rivers. When there are traffic jams or road construction, or when dams break, trouble ensues. But in most cases, vascular conditions are highly treatable, often without surgery.

Blood vessels are vital to your health: they supply your heart and body with everything that keeps you alive and gives you energy. Problems with your arteries and veins can be serious but are normally easily treated.

It is important to see a vascular surgeon, even when surgery is not needed. Vascular surgeons specialise in every kind of vascular problem and will talk to you about how exercise, diet and medication all play a part in overall vascular health. When surgery is needed, vascular surgeons are trained in all types of interventions, using modern keyhole techniques for most surgeries, allowing you to recover quickly (often walking out the clinic straight after treatment) and returning to your everyday activities with minimal discomfort or downtime.

Vascular surgeries at the Cadogan Clinic are delivered by a team of London's top vascular surgeons and a leading specialist in vascular and endovascular surgery, treating all major circulatory conditions including varicose veins, deep vein thrombosis, aneurysms, poor circulation and thread veins.  

Due to the inherent complexity of the many vascular disorders, there may be more than one way of managing a particular condition. For this reason, when planning a procedure, your surgeon will discuss all the treatment options in a multidisciplinary team meeting, to ensure that all perspectives are considered before recommending a course of action to a patient.

Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are enlarged veins that can be painful and may even cause swelling of the ankles. They typically form in the legs and are caused by malfunctioning vein valves, which don’t allow the blood to flow backwards. As a result, superficial veins carrying high-pressure blood from the deeper system become affected.

Thread Vein Treatment

Problematic thread veins may be painful and can be very visible. In many cases, people are unaware of the treatment options that are available and assume they have to suffer in silence instead of seeking professional help.

Deep Vein Thrombosis

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is the formation of a blood clot (or thrombosis) in a deep vein in the leg and can be a serious condition if left untreated.
