Blood circulates in the body through a system of blood vessels consisting of arteries and veins. Arteries carry oxygenated blood from the heart to different parts of the body. Veins are the vessels that carry deoxygenated blood from various tissues.
Non- Healing Wounds
Leg swelling refers to swollen or puffy legs that may occur in any region of the legs, including the thighs, calves, ankles, or feet. Leg swelling may have several causes. Some causes of leg swelling,such as walking or standing for long periods, are usually harmless.
Pain in Legs

Vascular Surgery Procedures
Vascular Access Procedures
Vascular access procedure is a method where a thin, long tube called a catheter is inserted into a blood vessel in the arm, neck, legs, or below the collar bone to create an access point or pathway for patients who require
Angioplasty and Stents
EVLT- Endovenous Laser Ablation of the Saphenous Vein
Endovenous laser ablation, also known as endovenous thermal ablation, is a minimally invasive surgical technique that uses high-frequency radio waves or laser energy to treat varicose saphenous veins.
EVLT of GSV - for Nocturnal Leg Cramps
EVLT is an acronym for Endovenous Laser Therapy/Treatment. It is also commonly referred to as EVLA or Endovenous Laser Ablation. EVLT is a minimally invasive procedure to treat varicose (enlarged) veins in your legs.
Peripheral stents are small tubular metal devices that can be implanted inside the peripheral vessels to treat a blockage or narrowing within the arteries or veins, leading to improved blood flow. Peripheral stents are most commonly employed
Endovenous Laser Ablation for Varicose Veins
Endovenous laser ablation is a minimally invasive, image-guided treatment for varicose veins in which laser energy is utilized to cauterize (burn) and close the abnormal veins that result in varicose veins.
Diagnosis of Peripheral Arterial Disease
Peripheral arterial disease is caused by the accumulation of fat, calcium, and cholesterol in the arterial wall (atherosclerosis), resulting in reduced blood flow - and therefore oxygen - to the limbs.
Ankle Brachial Index
Ankle-brachial index test is performed at the doctor’s office and doesn’t require any specific preparation. You will have to lie on the table, your doctor will use a standard blood pressure cuff to measure the pressure in your arms and in two arteries near each ankle.
Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI) program
Critical limb ischemia (CLI) refers to severe blockage of the arterial blood flow in both upper and lower limbs. It is an advanced stage of Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD). There is progressive worsening of the condition due to thickening of the arterial inner lining by a fatty substance which blocks the blood flow and is commonly known as atherosclerosis.
