UofL Physicians – Vascular Surgery and UofL Physicians – Vascular Surgery Associates consist of teams of experts in vascular surgery and minimally invasive endovascular therapy. Our specially trained physicians are dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment and management of disorders of all parts of the vascular system.

We provide care and treatment for a broad spectrum of circulatory disorders including peripheral arterial disease (PAD), thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA), vascular trauma, acute and chronic ischemia of upper and lower extremities, arterial aneurysms, vascular malformations and tumors, hemodialysis access, vascular disease of intestines and kidneys (visceral disorders), extra-cranial cerebrovascular disorders, as well as venous and lymphatic disorders. Also, we are a tertiary referral center for rare and complicated vascular disorders.

Our surgeons treat the most vascular trauma in Kentucky, providing comprehensive, state-of-the-art services for vascular emergencies throughout the region. Considering the degenerative and complex nature of the vascular disease and that those diseases often are accompanied by other health problems, we strive to treat patients in a holistic manner with compassion and dignity. We are committed to providing compassionate, top-notch care to all patients.

Diagnostic Services

When it comes to vascular disease, early detection can reduce the risk of serious complications. That is why our practices put a strong emphasis on diagnosis. We use the most advanced, non-invasive vascular testing, including:

  • Duplex ultrasonography: Determines multiple factors within the circulatory system. It can evaluate central (abdominal) and peripheral arteries and veins. It helps determine the amount of vascular stenosis (narrowing) or occlusion (complete blockage) within an artery. It also assists in ruling out aneurysms and it is the main aid to rule out thrombotic events.
  • Doppler and plethysmography
  • Ankle-brachial indices to determine blood flow

In an effort to prevent vascular events, like aneurysms or strokes, from occurring we also offer diagnostic vascular screenings for just $53. Since vascular conditions do not always present with symptoms, a 30-minute screening could help detect a problem before it occurs. Simply call 502-587-4327 to schedule a screening today.
