Hyperlipidemia defines an elevated level of lipids — like cholesterol and triglycerides — in your blood. Doctors link this disease to atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and other serious conditions like heart attack, stroke, and peripheral artery disease.

At the UPMC Division of Vascular Surgery, we work with primary care doctors, cardiologists, and other experts to diagnose and treat hyperlipidemia and its associated disorders.
