Vascular surgery is the surgical specialty which deals with diseases of the peripheral vascular system, consisting of the arterial and veinous circulatory system. Vascular Surgeons deal with problems related to arteries and veins in all parts of the body, with the exceptionof cardiac (heart) and cranial (brain) vessels.
Vascular surgeons perform several surgical procedures, including for the treatment of varicose veins and thrombosed (blocked) veins or arteries. At our hospital, most procedures are performed using minimally invasive techniques, with specialized equipment such as lasers and image intensifiers.
Laser varicose vein surgery is commonly performed at our hospital, using highly specialized equipment including doppler ultrasound and laser ablation of veins.
