What is a Vascular Surgeon?

A vascular surgeon is trained to diagnose and manage diseases of the vascular system, except those in your heart and brain. But vascular surgeons do a lot more than surgery. They ensure patients with vascular health problems understand their condition in detail and know how to care for themselves, too. 

Vascular surgeons treat patients using different types of vascular intervention, and many are trained in every imaginable operation, both invasive and minimally-invasive.

When to see a Vascular Surgeon?

You will probably be referred to a vascular surgeon by your primary care doctor, but if you find yourself unexpectedly in hospital you might also need checking by a specialist. Maybe you’ve asked your GP about constant pain in your legs and discover you actually have peripheral arterial disease. Those who are at high risk of vascular issues often see a vascular surgeon as a matter of course,  mainly smokers, diabetics, and those with unusually high blood pressure.
