When arteries are working properly, they provide our body with the oxygen-rich blood it needs to sustain life. When they're not, we can experience serious and sometimes life-threatening conditions such as heart attacks, aneurysms, or strokes. A skilled vascular surgeon can diagnose and treat arterial conditions, and has the expertise to determine when surgery is required and when the condition can be treated with non-invasive techniques. At Vascular Surgery Specialists, our surgeons are trained in and dedicated to treating diseases affecting the vascular system.

With normal circulation, arteries carry blood from your heart to the body, and veins return the blood to your heart. If the vein walls or valves become weak or are injured, the system stops working as it should, and can cause venous disease. Mild venous disease is quite common, but as it worsens, venous disease can cause serious health problems. At Vascular Surgery Specialists, our highly-skilled surgeons diagnose and treat venous conditions using the most modern equipment.
