Vascular Surgery has been an established subspecialty for more than 15 to 20 years. In Pune, we have been practising exclusive vascular surgical procedures since 1998. As we move into the 10th year it is time, we form a complete Department of Vascular Surgery. Over the last few years more & more endovascular procedures are taking place worldwide to treat vascular diseases.
With this in view, we at MJM Hospital have formed a team to offer integrated approach to treat vascular diseases. This would be the first of its kind in Maharashtra, where every form of vascular problem would be addressed and treated by a vascular surgeon and vascular interventionist to offer the best modalities of therapy be it surgery or endovascular therapy. The department is also recognized for conducting various international clinical trials under GCP guidelines. All in all we at MJM Hospital will offer a ONE STOP Solution to patients with vascular diseases, by experts in the field for more than 10 years.
This department caters to patients with arterial and venous pathologies of body other than heart and brain, also called as peripheral vascular diseases. These involve common conditions like arterial blockages resulting in gangrene of limbs / toes, strokes, deep venous thrombosis, renal vascular hypertensions, aneurysms etc. Diagnosis of PVD is helped by peripheral and hand held bed side Doppler machine, state of the art cath labs which also are used for Angiography + DSA and interventional vascular procedure like angioplasty, stents and stent graft insertion, thrombolytic, suction thrombectomy and embolisation. Majority of the patients with PVD need surgical correction.
Surgeries like peripheral bypass, embolectomies, carotid endarteriotomies for prevention of strokes etc. are routinely performed. The department has performed 550 surgeries in last three years with comparable results worldwide. Post operative course of these patients are monitored in cardiac recovery which is equipped with monitors, ventilators and well trained sisters and anaesthetists.
