Our Services

Vascular Surgery

We provide a comprehensive vascular service at Macclesfield District General Hospital delivered by a visiting Consultant, Mr Mark Welch from University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust (UHSM).

 

Blood machinery

We deal with the diagnosis, investigation and management of conditions affecting the health of the body’s circulation. Usually, this involves treating diseases of the arteries, veins and lymphatic vessels including:

  • Peripheral vascular disease: Disease resulting restricted arterial blood flow to the limbs or vital organs, frequently due to atherosclerosis (“furring-up”) of the arteries.
  • Aneurysmal disease: Diseases causing localised weaknesses in the walls of arteries resulting in formation of an aneurysm.
  • Stroke prevention: Urgent surgery for management of stroke and mini-stroke, in patients where the carotid arteries supplying the brain have become diseased, in order to prevent recurrent fatal of severely disabling stroke. 
  • Venous disease: Treatment of varicose veins and their associated conditions such as venous ulcer. Management of acute iliofemoral deep vein thrombosis.

Our services

The vascular service is an outpatient service. All patient appointments will be accommodated in a weekly clinic held at Macclesfield District General Hospital, supported by vascular technicians with duplex ultrasound scanning. Specialist vascular services are provided by University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust.

Urgent requests can be sent by fax to: 0161 291 6644, marked “for the attention of Mr M Welch”. 

Urgent or emergency referrals should be made directly to UHSM, to the vascular registrar on call.
