University of Alabama at Birmingham Vascular Surgery
The UAB Department of Surgery has a reputation for its unique blending of advanced medicine, excellent patient care, cutting edge research, and outstanding education. Our most valuable tool is our commitment to provide compassionate and comprehensive patient care.
Concern for our patients drives our highly skilled surgeons to specialize in a broad range of surgery specialties, with leading surgical faculty that produces superior surgical outcomes in our diverse patient population.
This same concern also compels us to investigate new treatments and technologies and to research the surgical treatment of various disorders and diseases. And to advance the future of surgical care, we also focus on training the next generation of leading surgeons through our residency and fellowship programs.
The UAB Division of Vascular and Endovascular Therapy treats the full spectrum of vascular disorders, and our surgeons are trained in all forms of modern endovascular procedures. This includes the treatment of thoracoabdominal aneurysms using personalized branched and fenestrated endografts, as well as minimally-invasive techniques for limb salvage/amputation prevention.
We also have an outpatient UAB Vein Clinic, which provides comprehensive evaluation and specialized treatment for vein disorders. Through clinical, basic and outcomes research, our faculty are working to advance the field of vascular surgery and improve outcomes for patients. We are also proud of our comprehensive training programs, which allow us to prepare the next generation of surgeons. We offer both an integrated vascular residency and a two-year vascular fellowship.
The Department of Surgery is dedicated to providing outstanding clinical care, educating the next generation of surgical leaders, advancing medical knowledge through cutting-edge research, and pursuing academic excellence for all endeavors.
To inspire faculty, residents, staff, and students to make outstanding research, education, and clinical contributions and collaborations at the regional, national and international level.
