Popliteal artery aneurysm care at Mayo Clinic

  • Your Mayo Clinic care team. Mayo Clinic doctors trained in blood vessel conditions (vascular specialists) and blood vessel surgery (vascular and endovascular surgeons) and other health care professionals work together to treat people with popliteal artery aneurysm and popliteal artery entrapment syndrome. Each Mayo Clinic location offers a vascular center staffed by doctors and other health professionals trained in vascular diseases.
  • Collaborative approach. Mayo Clinic's team-based, multidisciplinary approach to care means that services — such as vascular imaging, a physiology lab, endovascular therapy and surgical services — are easily accessible.
