The human vascular system is made up of arteries and a multitude of blood vessels that supply blood, oxygen and nutrients to every part of the body. A variety of conditions can result in vascular blood flow becoming insufficient to meet the body's needs. When this happens vascular surgery is most often required. Vascular surgeons are physicians with highly specialized training and skills who specialize in the surgical treatment of arteries and veins.
Newton-Wellesley Hospital offers excellence in vascular and endovascular surgery with the gentle touch that Newton-Wellesley is known for. Located in Boston's western suburbs, we are a convenient option for communities throughout Metro West, including Newton, Wellesley, Framingham, Natick, Dedham, Waltham and Watertown.
