A Vascular Surgeon is a highly trained specialist that focuses on diseases of the vascular system.
Vascular Surgeons treat blood vessels & arteries that are responsible for carrying oxygen rich blood throughout your body and returning it to your heart.
“Vascular surgeons treat every artery & vein of the body except the brain & heart” (1).
More than just surgery, a Vascular Surgeon educates patients on their disease process and helps provide every treatment option available.
Vascular surgeons are trained to know when to perform vascular surgery, but more importantly when not to perform surgery.

Vascular surgeons are trained in complicated open, as well as minimally invasive endovascular procedures.
Because they are able to provide all treatment options they are not biased to perform the one or two procedures within their scope.
