Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.

Dr. Harostock saw me in his office prior to my hospitalization. He spent almost an hour with me and my son. He showed us the film from my cardiac catherization and explained the fault in my aortic valve. He described the procedure and the options vis-a-vis which type of valve replacement he would use. (Ended up being a porcine (pig) valve)He held my hand on the way into the O.R. and when I woke up, I had an 11" scar down the center of my chest.A lung collapsed post-op and he spoke so kindly to me as he inserted a chest tube right there in my room in CICU.He is an excellent surgeon with a wonderful, caring manner. I hope I never have to see him again, but if I do, I know he'll take the same caring concern as he did for my first heart surgery.
