Vascular surgery is the assessment and treatment, operative or non-operative, of peripheral arterial and venous disorders. It encompasses a range of diagnosis from simple spider veins to life-threatening abdominal aortic aneurysms.
What is a Vascular Surgeon?
A vascular surgeon specializes in diseases of the vascular system, or arteries and veins. Treatments offered by vascular surgeons include medical therapy, and non-surgical or surgical reconstruction. The surgeon is trained in the diagnosis and management of diseases affecting all parts of the vascular system including carotid arteries, abdominal aorta as well as upper and lower extremities.
Baptist Medical Group vascular surgeons offer new, minimally invasive procedures in addition to traditional approaches to therapy. Patients who benefit from these simpler vascular procedures often resume quickly to normal activities.
