Vascular Surgeons

Specialists:

Vascular surgeons are doctors who treat diseases and problems within the vascular system, the network of arteries and veins that carry blood throughout the body. 

Vascular surgeons do more than surgery, though. They advise their patients on all the different ways to treat vascular problems, including with medication or diet, exercise, and other lifestyle changes.

Why do you need to see them?

Your primary care physician may refer you to a vascular surgeon if you have a health problem that involves your blood vessels. Sometimes, it may be because of a symptom that could be a sign of a vascular problem. For example, pain in your legs may mean you have peripheral artery disease. 

Also, people with conditions that can affect their blood vessels, like diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity, and those who smoke, may benefit from seeing a vascular specialist for a screening.

What do they do?

Vascular surgeons use treatments that range from noninvasive procedures to complicated surgeries. They treat arteries and veins in all parts of the body except for the heart and brain, which are handled by other specialists.

Vascular surgeons are primarily concerned with matching the person to the best treatment option available. In many cases, surgery isn’t the best solution.

Physician consultation is a good opportunity and you should be prepared for it.

  • Carry all necessary medical records for the discussion. It helps in better understanding your heart condition and avoids repetition of diagnostic tests.
  • Make sure you discuss your past medical history, surgical history, family history, and medications that you are taking.
  • Discuss about your lifestyle habits, dietary habits and also about your profession. Your lifestyle and nature of job may be associated with the risk for cardiac diseases.
