Vascular Conditions

If you have been diagnosed with a vascular disease, you will have many questions about treatment options and how your condition may progress. Whatever your prognosis, the experts at UK Gill Heart & Vascular Institute are here for you, offering leading-edge technology and individualized care.

What is Vascular Disease?

Just as heart disease affects the heart, vascular disease affects the blood vessels — arteries and veins — that carry blood from the heart to the rest of the body, and then back to the heart for replenishment of oxygen. Vascular conditions are often caused by or related to heart disease, including heart failure. Other risk factors include age, family history, obesity, physical inactivity, smoking and having diabetes.

Vascular Conditions We Treat

Up to 15 million people are estimated to have peripheral artery/vascular disease, the most common serious vascular condition. But because blood vessels travel to every point in your body, many vascular diseases remain undiagnosed until a cardiac event occurs. At UK Gill Heart & Vascular Institute, we want to treat you before that happens. We specialize in providing medical care for vascular conditions including     :
