Your vascular system includes all the arteries, veins and capillaries that carry blood to and from your heart. When a disease or disorder stops those vessels from doing their jobs correctly, a vascular specialist can help.
What is a vascular specialist?
A vascular specialist is a doctor specially trained in the vascular system. The vascular surgeons at Novant Health Vascular Specialists are board certified in the field, meaning they have devoted their education, training and careers to the vascular field. They are qualified to care for a wide variety of vascular diseases and disorders, including those resulting from injuries to blood vessels; those caused by chronic health problems including diabetes and hypertension; and those caused by lifestyle issues such as smoking or diabetes.
Each vascular problem is handled differently, with treatment often depending on other health concerns as well as the acute vascular problem. Treatments can include medications, lifestyle changes or surgery. Among the more common procedures handled by Novant Health Vascular Specialists:
Our physicians work closely with the team at Novant Health Vascular Diagnostics should a detailed diagnosis or evaluation of your vascular condition be needed. We are also integrated with the team at Novant Health Vein Specialists to provide care for patients with varicose veins and other specific vein disorders when our patients can benefit from that care.
