The Division of Vascular and General Surgery was formed as an initiative of the Department in response to the clustering of hospitals within the New Territories East Cluster. The team, working closely with vascular radiologists and other disciplines, provides integrated vascular services to patients from within the region and performs close to 100 major arterial operations per annum, of which more than one-third are aortic surgery for aneurysmal or occlusive diseases. In addition to accepting elective referrals, the team provides emergency vascular services round-the-clock in close collaboration with the Department of Radiology which provides 24-hour diagnostic and therapeutic angiographies.
The Division is equipped with advanced imaging facilities including state-of-the-art angiography suites, duplex scanners, computed tomography scanners with angiographic reformatting capabilities and 3-D magnetic resonance scanners housed under the Department of Diagnostic Radiology and Organ Imaging. A non-invasive vascular laboratory staffed by vascular surgeons, vascular nurses and radiographers offers a range of investigations such as segmental pressure measurements, Doppler waveform studies, Plethysmography and Duplex scanning.
We aim to provide efficient, accountable, quality vascular surgical and radiological interventions to patients with vascular diseases. Being part of an academic institution, we strive to enhance standard of vascular service by introducing new projects and innovative ideas.
