Vascular and Endovascular Surgery

The Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Department at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital is a major tertiary provider for vascular and endovascular surgery.  Diseases treated include:

  • peripheral arterial disease
  • aneurysmal disease
  • aortic dissection
  • carotid artery disease
  • renovascular disease
  • visceral vessel disease
  • acute vascular emergencies
  • thoracic outlet syndrome
  • multidisciplinary high risk foot and ulcer management
  • renal access surgery
  • acute and chronic complicated venous disease.
  • rare vasculopathies.

Specialists can treat vascular problems using open surgery or minimally invasive endovascular (keyhole) surgery depending on the patient, their anatomy, disease and the optimal outcomes for patient circumstances

Endovascular surgery includes:

  • Balloon angioplasty (stretch of a narrowing in an artery)
  • Stenting (a metal spring left in the narrowing to hold it open)
  • Stent grafting (for example: use of a covered metal spring to exclude an aneurysm)
