Vascular Surgery

There is a severe shortfall of genuine vascular care in our country. At Healthway Hospital, we offer authentic comprehensive vascular care through a world class facility.

We at healthway have experts in vascular surgery with more than 10 years of experience .Conditions such as hardening of the arteries can create “traffic jams” in your circulatory system, obstructing the flow of blood to any part of the body. Our vascular surgeons are trained in open, complicated surgery and in minimally invasive, endovascular procedures.

The management is variable from patient to aptient. While some patients need surgery some may not need it at all. Many vascular problems can be treated with medication or exercise.

Healthway has strong diagnostic facility including, doppler studies, CT , MRI & Cath Lab to support the department.
