Vascular and Endovascular Service

SKH Vascular and Endovascular Service is a specialised unit that provides state of the art treatment for a comprehensive range of vascular diseases. The team of surgeons' extensive experience in both open and minimally invasive endovascular therapy makes them expertly qualified to manage all vascular surgical patients. 

The team of surgeons are well trained and experienced to weigh the various treatment options available including medical therapy, as well as surgical and endovascular approaches. They use latest techniques with high precision facilities to provide the best possible care.  By offering the entire spectrum of therapeutic options, patients can be assured that they are receiving the most appropriate therapy for their conditions. Patients will have access to the entire range of therapeutic options, and ultimately the most appropriate treatment for their conditions. 

The team collaborates closely with colleagues from internal medicine, family medicine, endocrinology, cardiology, neurology, interventional radiology, and podiatry. With this approach, each patient receives a multidisciplinary, and yet individualised, diagnostic evaluation and treatment strategy. 

The team of surgeons academic work has been published in high impact scientific journals throughout the world with high citation rates. As recognised vascular leaders they are committed to providing vascular training at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and they are involved in conducting workshops and lectures both locally and internationally.
