Who Sees a Vascular Doctor?


Vascular Surgeon

A vascular doctor is a specialist that looks after all the blood vessels in the body, outside the brain and heart. He is  responsible for the essential ‘plumbing’ of the human body

 

What conditions do Vascular Doctors see?

  • Deep Vein clots (Deep Vein Thrombosis)
  • Spider Veins
  • Varicose Veins
  • Blocked Leg arteries
  • Diseased arteries in the chest and abdomen

Why is it important?

As blood vessels are the lifeline of the body, if they are not working properly problems can range from skin damage to amputations and ultimately strokes or even death.

Common patients who have vascular issues

  • Diabetic patients
  • Smokers
  • Obese patients
  • Patients with high cholesterol
  • People who stand for prolonged periods in their job

Is it always surgery? 

  • Prevention is always better than cure, early screening with vascular ultrasound study detects early problems and hopefully the patient can effect some lifestyle changes to prevent the situation from worsening
  • With the advent of new technologies, most treatments these days are minimally invasive, short stay or even clinic based.

What does ultrasound scan do?

  • It can detect and confirm  vein and artery disease. This is usually performed by the vascular specialist so that the patient has no need to travel to another location. Ultrasound is painless and radiation free.
