Popliteal artery aneurysm care at Mayo Clinic

  • Your Mayo Clinic care team. Mayo Clinic doctors trained in blood vessel conditions (vascular specialists), blood vessel surgery (vascular and endovascular surgeons) and other specialties work together to treat people with popliteal artery aneurysms.
  • Experience and expertise. Each Mayo Clinic location offers a vascular center, staffed by doctors and other specialists trained in vascular diseases. Mayo Clinic doctors have expertise in treating people with popliteal artery aneurysms and other aneurysms with endovascular surgery, open surgery and other options.

  • Mayo doctors evaluate and treat more than 350 people each year with lower extremity artery aneurysms, including popliteal artery aneurysms.

  • Latest diagnostic tools. At Mayo Clinic, doctors use detailed imaging tests to diagnose your condition, including computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and duplex ultrasound.
  • A unique and efficient system. A detailed itinerary for appointments, tests and procedures lets you make the most of your time at the clinic. Mayo staff runs all tests and labs at Mayo Clinic, which means tests taken in the morning can be reviewed the same afternoon. This collaborative approach means doctors can often evaluate you and develop a treatment plan within two or three days.
