Vascular Medicine

Specialists in vascular medicine at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) Heart & Vascular Center provide advanced diagnosis, treatment and prevention approaches for diseases of the vascular or circulatory system, which includes the arteries, veins and lymphatics.

Board-certified vascular medicine physicians at BWH are highly-trained and experienced, treating thousands of patients each year with common diseases and complex conditions of the vascular system and rare arterial, venous or lymphatic problems. They teach the next generation of leaders in vascular medicine through Brigham and Women’s Hospital’s vascular medicine fellowship and participate in research and clinical trials that evaluate new treatments for vascular diseases.

Using the Heart & Vascular Center’s signature multidisciplinary approach, vascular medicine specialists work closely with physicians and surgeons from cardiovascular medicine, cardiac surgery, vascular and endovascular surgery, interventional cardiology, neurology, radiology and more. Integrated care is delivered within the Shapiro Cardiovascular Center, a state-of-the-art cardiovascular facility with the full spectrum of inpatient and outpatient services beneath one roof.

Vascular Medicine works closely with specialists in the prevention of heart and vascular disease who identify and treat patients who have vascular disorders that contribute to atherosclerosis. Physicians, counselors and nutritionists manage patients who have hypertension, dyslipidemia and diabetes with wellness programs focusing on smoking cessation, exercise and more.
