Vascular Disease Definition and Types

An estimated one in two people will suffer from vascular disease at some time in their lives[1]. With such a high prevalence of vascular disease, especially in our region, Doctors Community Hospital has developed a program to provide advanced vascular disease treatment with the help of a fellowship-trained vascular surgeon.
