Mission or Goal of Unit:
The VCU Division of Vascular Surgery seeks to provide the mid-Atlantic's most advanced, patient-oriented, cost-effective and safe vascular and endovascular services. In addition, the VCU Division of Vascular Surgery seeks to provide the region's premier training environment for our region's future vascular surgery specialists. Our division's current clinical research includes the analysis of advanced vascular surgical techniques, including the treatment of complex thoracoabdominal aneurysms using fenestrated endografts, branches thoracic endografts, and physician modified endografts. The division continues to research and publish on its novel advanced alert system for acute limb ischemia, and its novel simplified approach to the treatment of axillosubclavian venous thrombosis using delayed first rib resection and scalenectomy. The division offers the region's most advanced and varied options for the treatment of lower extremity arterial occlusive disease using ultrasound guided plaque disruption and atherectomy excision. Although recognized as a leading center for challenging vascular surgical problems, the division seeks to expand its regional profile as the vascular surgery provider of choice for all patients across the region.
