About the department

The department of vascular surgery at Kardiolita Hospital Vilnius provides diagnostic and treatment services for the different diseases associated with the pathology of blood vessels. The medical team offers qualified consultations on treating arteriovenous malformations, venous pathology and complex diseases of the lymphatic vessels. To determine the exact severity and cause of circulatory disorders, doctors of the department conduct an ultrasound examination of blood vessels, in which profound and superficial arteries and veins are examined. If necessary, doctors also know the technique of catheter angiography, in which a contrast agent is injected into the vessels for better visualization. The professionalism of doctors allows for the full range of vascular surgical interventions, ranging from complex operations for aneurysms to minimally invasive methods of treating varicose veins using laser technology.

The department's vascular surgeons have exceptional experience treating chronic venous insufficiency and varicose veins. Doctors use conservative methods, such as drug and compression therapy, or operative methods, such as open classical surgery and endovascular surgical techniques. Often these treatments are combined. If indicated, laser surgery can be performed. Laser and traditional operations on the vessels of the legs are safe and painless. All techniques are performed following the strict modern requirements of cosmetic surgery.
