Education: An Important Part of a Vascular Surgeon’s Job
Vascular surgeons are trained to take care of your circulatory system, to make certain your arteries and veins are doing an efficient job of moving blood to and from your heart. They strive to ameliorate the effects of arterial disease, a common affliction in the Western World that can lead to amputations and even death.
Health and Wellness: Varicose Veins
Varicose veins are enlarged, twisted, and bulging veins commonly present in the legs. They are often caused by a condition called venous insufficiency. This occurs when dysfunctional valves within the leg veins allow the blood to pool in the legs, increasing the pressure throughout the venous system.
Catching Fish and Limb-Loss Risks
Though many people have a genetic predisposition for vascular diseases, it is never too late to right the ship—with the correct medical regimen and the right diet and exercise plan, patients can see health benefits, even in the later stages of the disease.
Health Innovations: Ellipsys and Brain Mapping AI
