Vascular Services

For more information about our vascular services, call 320-255-5855.

The vascular system is made up of the blood vessels outside of your heart. Arteries carry blood away from the heart, and veins bring blood back to the heart. If the flow of blood becomes abnormal, it can lead to problems.

We care for these vascular conditions:

  • Abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysm
  • Peripheral artery disease (PAD)
  • Carotid artery disease
  • Varicose veins/Venous insufficiency/Vein ulcers
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)/pulmonary embolism
  • Mesenteric ischemia - blocked arteries of the intestines, causing weight loss and pain in belly
  • Renal artery disease - blocked kidney arteries, causing uncontrolled high blood pressure and sometimes kidney failure
  • Small vessel disease - narrowing of the small arteries in the feet and hands, including conditions such as Raynaud’s and Buerger’s disease
  • Thoracic outlet syndrome

Based on the health problem, our team of experts will manage the condition through changes to lifestyle, medication, surgery or minimally-invasive treatment. Through our multidisciplinary approach, we make it easy for you to connect with the right specialist from beginning to end of your care.

Diagnosis and treatment are supported by St. Cloud Hospital’s advanced technology and imaging capabilities, including CT scans, MRI and endovascular operating rooms. We work closely with St. Cloud Hospital’s nationally recognized Stroke Center.

In 2018 we were recognized in the 2018 U.S. News & World Report as a hospital with high performance in abdominal aortic aneurysm repair.
