Vascular conditions affect the veins and arteries, which bring oxygen to every living cell in your body. In most cases, vascular conditions are highly treatable, often without surgery.
Patients with vascular conditions should consult a vascular surgeon, even when surgery is not needed. Vascular surgeons specialize in treatments of virtually every kind of vascular condition. A vast array of conditions and diseases affect your veins and arteries, and treatments vary depending on the source of your condition. Vascular surgeons may also talk to you about how exercise, diet, and medication can be the first step in regaining your health. When surgery is needed, vascular surgeons work with you to develop a plan for your health – keeping you informed, empowered, and involved every step of the way.
