What is Vascular Surgery?
Vascular surgery refers to a variety of different procedures to treat injuries and disorders of the arteries, veins and lymph vessels. Vascular surgery procedures are performed on the aorta and arteries and veins in the neck, abdomen, pelvis, legs and arms, excluding those in the heart and brain. Cardiothoracic surgeons perform surgery on the coronary arteries and those leaving and entering the heart; neurosurgeons (and neurovascular) surgeons focus on intracranial vessels.
