Vascular surgeons help patients with a wide variety of diseases affecting the arteries and veins.
Vascular Surgeons treat complications from:
- blockages in the arteries or veins,
- blood clots,
- varicose veins
- and many other vascular diseases.
The vascular surgeon is trained in the diagnosis and management of diseases affecting all parts of the vascular system, excluding conditions that affect the vessels within the heart and brain. They have completed an intense training in General and Vascular Surgery which allows them to manage these diseases with treatment alternative ranging from medical management to operative intervention. They can perform this operative intervention both by minimally invasive (endovascular) and / or open operative procedures.
Vascular Surgeons are the only specialists recognized by medical boards, hospitals credentialing and the conventional medical community for the treatment of all aspects of vascular disease. However, patients may be treated for vascular disease, such as varicose veins or peripheral arterial disease, by physicians in other specialties, who are not residency trained vascular specialists.
Often driven by economic consideration, this results in patients being incompletely treated, contributes to duplication of service, and results in increased health costs. Our goal as specialty trained vascular physicians is to offer patients all treatment options to effectively treat their disease, reduce health care costs, and provide better patient outcomes and satisfaction.
