The Alberta Vascular Surgeons seek to advance excellence and innovation in vascular health through education, advocacy, research, and public awareness.
Vascular surgery is a specialty dedicated to the evaluation and treatment of diseases and conditions affecting the arteries and veins of the neck, thorax, abdomen and extremities (but do not include the heart or brain vessels). These diseases could include life-threatening aneurysms and blockages that slow or stop blood flow to the brain, limbs and all vital organs. Left untreated, blood vessel problems can result in serious damage, such as limb-loss, kidney failure or strokes.
