The Canberra Hospital provides a range of specialist outpatient services within the Outpatient Corridor Building 1, Level 2.
Vascular surgery focuses on blood vessels (veins and arteries) and it includes a full range of venous and arterial surgery. Services include carotid artery endarterectomy, aortic aneurysm repair and lower extremity bypass for peripheral vascular disease.
Generally, access to these services is through:
- Referral by your GP or Specialist;
- Referral from the Canberra Hospital Emergency Department;
- Referral from Canberra Hospital wards after an admission.
Depending on which clinical specialty you attend, you may be seen by one or more health professionals including doctors, nurses and/or allied health staff. The Canberra Hospital is a tertiary teaching hospital and therefore students of the above professions may be in attendance during your appointment.
