Vascular Surgery

Vascular surgeons are highly trained professionals in the treatment of vascular disease. Your vascular system consists of the veins and arteries that carry blood and nutrients throughout the body. Efficient blood flow is vital to good health. Unfortunately, vascular conditions can be silent and impact your well-being without you realizing until something serious occurs. This is why it’s important to have your vascular health checked during your annual physical.

At Myrtue Medical Center, our vascular surgeons provide a wide variety of treatments for vascular disease. Many of these treatment options are minimally invasive, meaning only a few small incisions are required to perform the operation.

Vein conditions we frequently treat include:

  • Varicose veins
  • Vein reflux
  • Carotid artery stenosis
  • Abdominal aortic aneurysms
  • Peripheral vascular disease
  • Peripheral arterial disease
  • Aortic Aneurysms
  • Claudication
  • Stasis ulcers
  • Non-healing wounds

When to See a Vascular Surgeon

Most people will be referred to a vascular surgeon when they need to see one. However, there are some venous conditions that do present symptoms, which prompt patients to ask their primary care providers about vascular surgery.

The following are some of the more noticeable vascular disease symptoms:

  • Swelling in the legs
  • Itching in the legs
  • Pain, numbness, or tingling in the legs
  • Hair loss on the feet or legs
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Weak, brittle toenails

People with diabetes, high blood pressure, and a family history of vascular disease are more susceptible to these conditions. Be sure to discuss your risk factors with your doctor
