Deciding to have a surgical procedure on your arteries and veins is complex. The decision has to balance the risk of the procedure against the possible risks of your medical condition. A Vascular Surgeon has extensive and specific training and experience with vascular diseases to perform your procedure or surgery.
If surgical treatment is warranted, the surgeon will explain why to you, and review the benefits of treatment as well as the alternatives with you. You will be given a date for surgery and an informative surgical package when you leave your appointment, which contains all necessary information related to the operation or procedure.
