The vascular service at Circle Birmingham undertakes the assessment and treatment of arterial diseases, abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysms, varicose veins, diabetic foot conditions and general vascular surgery.
It has a Diagnostic Imaging Unit, where patients for receive scans and Doppler studies to investigate the performance of their arteries and check for any narrowing. This can usually be performed at the patient’s first consultant appointment as a one-stop service, speeding diagnosis and the commencement of treatment.
Venesection (the therapeutic removal of blood) is also undertaken by this department for patients with genetic haemochromatosis (a condition in which the body stores too much iron) or polycythaemia (where a patient’s red blood cell count is higher than normal).
At Circle Birmingham we offer a consultant-led service across our medical practises with post-operation support for your entire treatment from our dedicated staff. You’ll get to know your team, benefit from continuity of care and avoid having to attend multiple appointments.
