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.

This doctor performed surgery on my daughter about 6 years ago. The surgery removed part of her esophagus and stomach. 9 days after the surgery they sent her home with a temp. she was home 2 days and returned to the hospital to find out that the surgery came apart 3/4 of the way. They had to perform corrective surgery and clean up infection in her chest cavity. She was in the hospital for several months only to find out there was still a leak in the esophagus so they put in a stint, which fell though to her stomach and they had her wait for 2 weeks before they removed that stint and put in another which caused her to be in the hospital another month unable to keep food down. Finally she survived but only to live with severe nerve pain until she died 5 years later at the age of 45. I don't believe they needed to do the radical surgery that he did and I blame him for her ultimate death., I would not recommend him for anyone.
