Vascular Surgery is a surgical subspecialty that manages a variety of conditions like carotid stenosis, peripheral arterial disease, aneurysms, leg swelling, and varicose veins. It also provides temporary and permanent access for dialysis patients. It emphasizes the role of conservative measures with medical therapy and lifestyle modifications prior to proceeding with an intervention. A vascular surgeon can perform minimally invasive catheter-based interventions as well as open surgical procedures. Hence, he can choose the best option for each individual patient as opposed to some other practitioners who can only do catheter-based interventions.
