Arterial Surgery

Mr Onwudike provides a comprehensive modern service in all aspects of arterial diseases including:

He is supported by an excellent vascular laboratory.

Mr Onwudike performs approximately 20 - 30 carotid operations every year excellent results.

Aortic aneurysm is best repaired before it ruptures. If it is repaired before it bursts, up to 95% of patients will survive. When it ruptures only about only about 30% will survive nationally. We hope that the national screening programme being planned will reduce the numbers of people who present with ruptured aneurysm.

Apart from the conventional open operation for aneurysms, Mr Onwudike also offers the minimally invasive repair of aneurysms using Stent-grafts inserted through the groin otherwise known as endovascular repair.

He also offers all forms of bypass operations using the patient's own vein or artificial materials. Some people will require balloon angioplasty or stent. Unfortunately a few people, particularly those who come to us late, may only benefit from an amputation. For these few we provide an excellent rehabilitation programme and artificial limb services.

In arterial surgery, Mr Onwudike works very closely with vascular radiologists, vascular nurse specialists, vascular anaesthetists, cardiologists, diabetologists and stroke physicians amongst others.
