Clinics and Specialty Areas
Johns Hopkins vascular surgeons are associated with the following clinics and specialty areas:
Aortic dissection (a tear in the aorta) is a medical emergency. Over time, the tear can affect your brain, lungs, arms, legs, and heart.
Peripheral Arterial Disease
Peripheral Arterial Disease, also known as PAD, can cause leg discomfort with walking or more serious problems such as pain in the foot at rest, toe ulcers, toe infections and gangrene.
Carotid Artery Disease
Carotid artery disease occurs when the main blood vessels in the neck that carry blood and oxygen to the brain become narrowed.
Diabetic Wound Care
Foot care is especially critical for diabetic patients as they are more likely than other individuals to develop foot complications.
Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
Thoracic outlet syndrome occurs when nerves or blood vessels are compressed by the rib, collarbone or neck muscles at the top of the outlet.
Damaged veins disrupt the circulatory system, which allows blood to flow when the muscles relax.
The Vein Center offers the latest treatments for various vein disorders.
Adult Congenital Aortic Syndrome
Congenital aortic syndrome is a rare disease characterized by abnormal anatomy of the thoracic aorta.
Noninvasive Vascular Lab
The noninvasive vascular lab is equipped to test for several vascular diseases that may affect how blood flows through the arteries and veins.
