Responsibilities

Vascular surgeons must be sensitive to the needs of a diverse group of patients afflicted with vascular and circulatory disorders. Vascular surgery is a surgical specialty focusing the arteries and veins that carry blood through the body.

Vascular surgeons perform operations to repair damaged arteries and veins and to remove blockages from arteries and veins clogged with plaque or blood clots.  In addition to performing procedures, Vascular surgeons oversee and coordinate the efforts of large teams of surgeons and nurses in the operating theater. Vascular surgeons interpret results of diagnostic tests including but not limited to magnetic resonance imaging, CT scans, balloon angioplasty, stenting, sclerotherapy and other minimally-invasive catheter procedures to diagnose patients.
