Some of the conditions that are treated by vascular surgeons include varicose veins, deep vein thrombosis, and blood clot. A vascular surgeon deals primarily in diseases affecting all parts of the vascular system except those of the heart and brain.
Symptoms characterizing varicose veins and other vascular conditions include swelling of the feet and legs, ‘heavy’ legs, cramping and throbbing of the legs and large visible veins under the skin surface.
Vascular surgeons may treat varicose veins and spider veins using the same procedures as dermatologists, including sclerotherapy, laser surgery (endovenous laser ablation) or ambulatory phlebectomy.
Besides varicose veins, chronic venous insufficiency, vascular surgeons treat hand and foot complications of diabetes, arterial diseases such as aortic dissection and aortic aneurysms.
Vascular doctors rely on angioplasty which is mostly open balloon angioplasty. Other treatment options include stenting and physiotherapy. Vascular surgeons use angiograms to complement angioplasty and other treatment procedures.
