Vascular surgery is the field of medicine that deals with blood vessels other than the heart and brain. In the past two decades endovascular treatment has emerged as a less invasive alternative to many problems, and both open and catheter-based procedures are used to treat vascular problems.
Vascular surgeons treat many problems:
- Thoracic and abdominal aneurysms
- Carotid artery blockage and aneurysms
- Lower extremity blockage
- Leg pain and foot wounds
- Varicose veins and blood clots
- Leg swelling
- Arteriovenous access for hemodialysis
- Thoracic outlet syndrome
- Vascular trauma
- Entrapment syndromes
