The Vascular Center at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, offers comprehensive care for circulatory system disorders. Our vascular surgeons practice advanced treatment options, including vascular bypass surgery to restore proper blood flow.
Vascular bypass surgery redirects blood flow through another blood vessel to avert the artery or vein that is damaged or blocked. The blood vessel used to bypass an area may be a natural vein or artery from another part of the body or one that is man-made. It is usually done for severe peripheral arterial disease (PAD) such as disabling leg pain or gangrene.
Vascular bypass surgery is identified by the area affected and can include:
Using a blood vessel from another part of the body, or in some cases, a man-made blood vessel, a vascular surgeon creates a new path around the blockage allowing blood to flow freely.
Bypass surgery is usually reserved for patients who have severe peripheral arterial disease or a blockage that is life threatening.
