Vascular Surgery

The Regional Vascular Surgery Program at Guelph General Hospital offers diagnosis, treatment and management of disease affecting the blood vessels of the patients (arteries and veins).  

Atherosclerosis is a disease affecting all the arteries of the human body, leading to hardening and narrowing of the arteries through build up of plaque made out of fat, cholesterol, calcium and other material. Over time the plaque can narrow the arteries limiting the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the organs and other parts of the body. Possible complications of atherosclerosis are heart attack, stroke, severe leg pain with walking, amputation of toes, limbs and possible death.

Our specialized vascular team includes five vascular surgeons and one clinical nurse practitioner as well as a number of registered nurses and radiologists help treat patients with a variety of vascular diseases.
