In brief: Vascular Surgeon
Vascular physicians are mostly vascular surgeons, as traditionally most patients needed nothing or surgery.
The risk factors are treated by the pmd and the surgeon encorages exercise, does angioplasty/stents or surgery etc. There are now some vascular medicine mds and cardiologists treating pad. Invasive radiologists and invasive cardiologists are also involved.
