Vascular Care

Vascular Care

When it comes to vascular care, there’s a lot of ground to cover: the typical adult body has about 100,000 miles of blood vessels, which include arteries, veins and capillaries. Blockages and other damage to these vessels reduce blood flow throughout the body, which can cause unpleasant symptoms, limit your independence and increase your risk for stroke and other serious health issues.

At CHI Saint Joseph Health, our vascular specialists diagnose and care for many blood vessel diseases that can interfere with healthy circulation. We offer both non-invasive treatments and the latest, minimally invasive surgical techniques to help you get back to feeling and living your best.

To make your appointment, call 859.313.2255 or find a board-certified vascular specialist anytime online.
