In brief: A Lot
A vascular surgeon is a highly trained physician dedicated to the care of disorders of the circulatory system, including the arteries and the veins.
The arteries carry blood from the heart to the vital organs and limbs, and the veins that return the blood back to the heart. This includes the medical management and diagnosis of these conditions, minimally invasive interventions, and surgery.

In brief: Vascular Surgery
Vascular surgery is the study of the diagnosis, management, ; treatment of disorders of the circulatory system (arteries, veins, ; lymphatics).
Vascular surgeons are considered the experts in this field. The term "surgery" can be misleading, as it can be associated with incisions on the body. But most "vascular surgery" is done with non-invasive methods with catheters, balloons, stents, lasers.

In brief: Vascular Surgery
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.

Surgery that is performed on veins or arteries, with most of the surgery being performed on arteries due to arterial blockages from atherosclerosis.
Can be performed by vascular surgeons, and sometimes as non-invasive procedures in radiology.
