Midlands Vascular Surgery and our partnering specialists ensure that patients with vascular health issues know and understand all their options.
This pertains to the management of veins and arteries in many parts of the body (with the exception of the brain and heart) and our unit is involved in dealing with abdominal aortic aneurysm, carotid artery disease, peripheral arterial disease, peripheral arterial and venous disease, venous leg ulceration, as well as promoting cardiovascular health and providing a renal access service for patients requiring haemodialysis.
Our patients deserve the best available equipment in order for us to deliver the highest quality of patient outcomes. Prior to this, patients requiring more complicated vascular surgery would have had to travel long distances to other facilities outside the region. This new technology provides clinicians with high-quality images during a variety of surgical procedures, including vascular, urological, orthopaedic, spinal, general surgery and pain management.
We recently invested in a mobile C-arm from GE Healthcare – the OEC Elite™ CFD – which will help prolong and improve the quality of the lives of our patients.
MMC was the first hospital in Africa to invest in this state-of-the-art equipment.
Our cutting edge equipment provides surgeons with seamless access to highly-accurate images of veins and arteries, making procedures much safer and smoother for patients.
