The Vascular Surgery service is based at the Peter Lougheed Centre, but provides city wide coverage. We are a large volume center with complex cases. We have a dedicated faculty who are keen on teaching residents and medical students. There are opportunities for research in clinical outcomes and education for those interested in pursuing it. Some trainees may also be interested in the surgeon scientist program.
The Vascular Surgery Service is closely linked to Interventional Radiology Services and our groups work together routinely and have joint rounds to add different perspectives. Our group also works closely with our cardiac surgery colleagues to address complex aortic cases including arch and thoracoabdominal procedures.
We have two hybrid OR suites that were built specifically for vascular surgery, a vascular surgery step down unit and a dedicated vascular ward. Our group has a dedicated research coordinator, vascular nurse practitioner, and an internal medicine team focused on vascular surgery patients. We work closely with podiatrist in the limb preservation clinic which is a dedicated in hospital vascular/podiatry and vascular risk reduction clinic.
