The division covers the full spectrum of vascular care, including treatment for aortic diseases in the thoracic and abdominal aorta, carotid surgery and stenting for stroke prevention, lower extremity arterial bypass and stenting for limb preservation, endovascular interventions for vascular disease and a dedicated Vein Center focused on contemporary management of venous disorders. Clinical care is provided by board-certified vascular surgeons with advanced endovascular therapeutic experience, vascular surgery fellows and integrated residents, as well as highly experienced inpatient and outpatient advance practice providers.

In addition, the division is actively involved in a number of clinical research studies dedicated to the advancement of vascular care with full-time clinical coordinator support. Current trials include medical treatment to slow aneurysm growth, newer generation stent grafts for aortic aneurysms, unique devices to treat lower extremity arterial disease and stem cell and gene therapy for advanced lower extremity vascular disease.
