The Division of Vascular Surgery recognizes three inter-related major goals: Clinical Excellence, Education, and Research. The primary goal of the Division of Vascular Surgery is to provide the highest quality medical care to patients with a broad variety of vascular problems, including arterial, venous, and lymphatic disease.

The Division of Vascular Surgery supports a broad range of clinical and basic science research programs. Current clinical research activities include long-term studies of carotid artery atherosclerosis, renal artery stenosis, lower extremity bypass grafts, and using duplex ultrasound. In the realm of basic science, research activities are focusing on mechanisms of healing in the arterial wall, and pharmacological control of the vascular response to injury.
