Vascular surgery is a surgical branch focused on disorders of the circulatory system (arteries, lymphatic vessels and veins). Vascular surgeons are trained for radiological and surgical procedures on the circulatory system.
You may want to consult a vascular surgeon if you have been diagnosed with an aneurysm (enlargement of an artery), atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and strokes most commonly. Vascular surgeons treat a number of conditions including lower leg ulcers and poor circulation, aneurysms (dilatation of blood vessels) and strokes (cerebral vascular accidents).
