About Vascular & Endovascular Surgery

UK Vascular & Endovascular Surgery is dedicated to treating all aspects of vascular disease for the people of Kentucky and surrounding areas. We provide comprehensive care for patients with arterial and venous disease, offering the full spectrum of diagnostic, endovascular and surgical procedures. We also focus on aortic pathology by performing the largest number of complex thoracic, thoracoabdominal and abdominal aortic aneurysms and dissections in Kentucky and surrounding areas. We have developed and pioneered our own unique technique to treat occlusive disease. In addition to superb patient care, Vascular & Endovascular Surgery is also dedicated to advancing the field through publications and leadership positions in regional, national and international vascular surgery societies.

Since 2015, we have seen a significant growth in patient volume. During that time, outpatient encounters have risen 69.0 percent and inpatient admissions have risen 73.1 percent. OR cases have had the most growth at 273.1 percent.

Our patients have been sicker, too. The CMI has risen from 2.53 in FY15 to 2.7276 in 2017 and is projected to grow to 2.8856.

Along with increasing volumes, our treatment for carotid disease has been recognized nationally, and we are handling approximately one-third of the total stents in the region.

Vascular & Endovascular Surgery is part of the Midwest Vascular Collaborative, a voluntary, cooperative group of clinicians, hospital system representatives and research personnel organized to improve the care of patients with vascular disease. By collecting and exchanging information, MVC strives to continuously improve the quality, safety, effectiveness and cost of caring for patients with vascular disease.
