Venous Bypass Surgery

What Is Venous Bypass Surgery?

Venous bypass is surgery that improves the blood flow through your veins.

Your doctor will use a healthy vein to make a new path around the part of your vein that isn't working.

Your doctor may suggest vein bypass if you have:

  • A blood clot
  • Scar tissue
  • Any other type of blockage in your veins
