  • Vascular Surgery

    A vascular surgeon is a medical professional who has been trained to diagnose and treat diseases of the vascular system. The vascular system is made up of blood vessels and veins. It helps blood get to the organs, and if something stops the blood from flowing properly, organs can suffer and patients can become extremely sick. Vascular surgeons can help fix any vascular problems that may occur including blockage of Carotids, blockage of leg arteries,aortic aneurysms and varicose veins.
