Each year, the Division of Vascular Surgery provides comprehensive care to approximately 6,000 patients who suffer from vascular diseases and its conditions. We treat peripheral arterial disease, carotid disease, visceral and renovascular disorders, as well as aneurysm disease of the thorax, abdomen and extremities. Minimally invasive techniques are routinely applied in the management of peripheral interventions, as well as in the management of aneurysms. As part of the Vanderbilt Heart and Vascular Institute, we provide care in a single location for our patients with cardiovascular disease. Division Chief Thomas Naslund, M.D., directs an ICAVL-accredited noninvasive laboratory, which supports the noninvasive diagnostic efforts, as well as ultrasound-directed vascular intervention.
