Why Choose UF Health?

UF Health’s nationally recognized team of vascular surgeons are board-certified and fellowship-trained in the diagnosis and treatment of vascular diseases. Our experts provide every patient with a comprehensive approach to care and use advanced technologies and innovative therapies to precisely diagnose and treat the most complex cases. Patients can also access the latest therapies and treatments for vascular disease that are only available at UF Health via clinical trials.

The body’s vast network of blood vessels, known as the vascular system, moves oxygen rich blood from the heart to tissues and organs throughout the body. When disease causes the interruption of efficient transport of blood, the results can be debilitating and life-threatening. UF Health vascular surgeons specialize in treating the full spectrum of vascular disease and collaborate with the full multidisciplinary team of cardiologists, cardiac surgeons and other specialists to deliver the most comprehensive and effective treatment plans tailored to the needs of each patient.
