The vascular (or circulatory) system is an amazingly complex network of vessels carrying blood and lymph through our bodies. Vascular surgeons treat the circulatory system and the diseases that affect it. Blockades in our blood vessels can cause a cascade of problems, not just in the affected areas where these jams appear, in other areas of the body. Our experts treat patients with great care and consideration for their conditions, working closely with other specialists to understand the root cause and find the best approach to treatment. Older adult patients should almost always consult cardiologists and vascular experts, keeping in mind that both the vessels and the “main pump” are both equally important for keeping you going strong.
Despite the severity of vascular conditions, these diseases are often quite manageable. Most of the interventions are routine procedures. This means that patients will be able to be treated with minimal surgical impact.
