What is vascular Surgery?
Vascular surgery focuses on the surgical treatment of disease in your circulatory system outside of your heart and brain. This includes your arteries, veins and lymphatic system:
- Arteries: Blood vessels that carry oxygenated blood away from the heart to the body.
- Veins: Blood vessels that carry blood from the body back into the heart.
- Lymphatic system: A network of vessels throughout the body that drains lymph fluid from tissues to maintain fluid balance and to clear byproducts of inflammation.

If the doctor suspects that a person may have decreased blood flow somewhere in the peripheral (arms, legs, and/or neck) circulation, vascular studies may be performed. Using these studies and other information, the surgeon will decide on the best course of treatment for the patient.
