What is Vascular Disease?

Most Americans are accustomed to heart disease and with the outcomes or consequences of blockages in the vessels which carry blood to and from the heart. But few people realize that blockages that are caused by a build-up of plaque and cholesterol affect more than just coronary arteries.

Arteries throughout the body carry oxygen-rich blood further away than from the heart, so blockages could happen in all arteries with serious effects.

What do vascular surgeons do?

Vascular surgeons are specialists or doctors who are highly trained to treat diseases of the vascular system. Your blood vessels arteries carrying oxygen-rich blood and veins carrying blood back to the heart -- are the carriageways of your circulatory system.

Without smoothly flowing blood, your body cannot function or operate properly. Conditions like hardening of the arteries could create “traffic jams” in your circulatory system, preventing the flow of blood to any part of the body.

A vascular surgeon makes sure that the patients with vascular health issues know and understand all their alternatives.
