Our surgeons are all vascular fellowship trained and have broad clinical experience in caring for patients with a broad range and complexity of arterial and venous diseases including carotid artery disease, aneurysmal disease, and limb preservation, ensuring you have access to the best care in the region.

As part of a multidisciplinary team of vascular specialists, we are able to provide the optimal medical, surgical, endovascular, or radiologic therapy to best care for you. Rooted in a rich tradition of both academic and clinical excellence, our vascular surgeons treat a full range of non-cardiac vascular disorders, conditions that involve the arteries and veins outside of the heart.

Treatments involve proven state-of-the-art therapies, leading-edge minimally invasive intervention and, when appropriate, exciting new clinical trials to treat such conditions as peripheral arterial disease, carotid artery disease, varicose veins, blood clots and much more.

The skill and experience of our vascular surgeons at the University of Colorado Hospital will make all the difference to your treatment.
