Vascular Medicine

The Department of Vascular Medicine offers state-of-the-art care for diseases of the circulatory system, including veins, arteries, lymphatics, and the circulating blood. We also care for patients with lower limb wounds. Our team of specialist
doctors provide expertise in the treatment and management of:

  • Venous diseases including deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), and associated clotting disorders; anticoagulation; chronic venous insufficiency, varicose veins, and thrombophlebitis.
  • Arterial diseases caused by atheroma (cholesterol plaques), arterial thrombosis and embolism; inflammation (vasculitis) and vasospasm disorders (Raynaud’s phenomenon and chilblains).
  • Assessment and management of risk factors that contribute to venous and arterial disease.
  • Lymphatic diseases include primary and secondary forms of lymphoedema (leg swelling); and other causes of lower limb swelling.
  • Lower limb wounds and ulcers.

Our Department is the only one of its kind in a NSW Public Hospital that provides dedicated Vascular Medicine services to both inpatients and outpatients. The Department of Vascular Medicine is supported by a Clinical Nurse Consultant (CNC) in Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) and a dedicated non-invasive Vascular Laboratory on the campus.
