Vascular Treatment Options to Fit Each Patient
At University Health, our vascular surgeons test and diagnose diseases of the vascular system and recommend treatment options tailored to your condition. Our partnership with UT Health San Antonio ensures you have access to the most advanced endovascular techniques as well as traditional vascular surgery options.
Level I Vascular Emergency Program
Sudden aortic syndromes are life threatening and seconds matter when you have a circulatory system condition. Our Level I Vascular Emergency Program has resources and treatment options many outlying or referring hospitals don’t have in-house. Our physicians actively work to reduce treatment delays and provide the appropriate treatment for your needs.
In addition to sudden aortic syndromes, such as thoracic (chest) aortic aneurysms and abdominal aortic aneurysms, we treat a lack of circulation in the arms and legs (acute limb ischemia) and other vascular conditions with a wide range of treatments.
We offer wound care for a wide range of vascular conditions. Foot ulcers are among the most common conditions we treat. Ulcers are wounds or open sores that will not heal or keep returning. The three most common types of leg and foot ulcers include:
- Venous stasis ulcers
- Neurotrophic (diabetic)
- Arterial (ischemic ulcers)
Our vascular experts care for each of these conditions in our offices, provide instructions for wound care at home and give recommendations on prevention techniques.
