Vascular diseases are complex and a team approach is best for the patient. Your primary doc is an anchor on your team, for referrals, medications, and refills.

Vascular Surgeon: Vascular surgery is a medical discipline that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and problems of the arterial, venous and lymphatic systems, exclusive of the heart. Interventional treatment can be both surgical and non-surgical (i.e. Catheter based and minimally invasive) and as such, make vascular surgeons uniquely qualified to provide unbiased recommendations for patients.
