About Us

UConn Health has assembled a top-notch team of board-certified doctors and surgeons to provide complete vascular care for our patients.

The specialists in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery routinely treat patients for artery and vein diseases ranging from varicose veins to aortic aneurysms, and they offer the most modern, minimally invasive procedures available today.

We have an experienced team of vascular and endovascular surgeons who collaborate with cardiologists in vascular medicine and other physicians to provide our patients with the highest quality of patient-centered care.

As a research-focused, academic medical center, our doctors also work closely with researchers to develop new and innovative treatment options for a variety of vascular conditions and share these new advancements with the future practitioners of vascular medicine.
