Vascular diseases involve the body's system of arteries, veins or lymph vessels. When blood flow is blocked, the connected organs and tissues are damaged.
At the Vascular Health Center at Fairview Southdale Hospital, we specialize in treating these conditions in one location to improve your quality of life.

Artery and Vein Screenings: Protect your life and limbs
Early detection and prevention of vascular disease are crucial. Why? They save lives and improve quality of life. Artery disease is often silent. And, without symptoms, plaque can narrow or weaken arteries, setting the stage for strokes and heart attacks.
Screening can help you avoid:
- Heart attack
- Pain in legs and loss of legs
- Ruptured aneurysm
At Fairview, we offer you vascular disease screening in our nationally accredited vascular lab. You’ll find we perform all tests non-invasively (no needles), painlessly and quickly. It takes less than an hour for the complete screening package. You’ll also receive artery disease education material.
Who should be screened?
Individuals with the following risk factors:
- high cholesterol
- high blood pressure
- sedentary lifestyle
Additional candidates for screening are individuals with a family history of:
- abdominal aortic aneurysm
- heart or vascular disease
