    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.

Ego edging out education

The "Dr" didn't respond to numerous attempts at contact so I could be informed as to test results,possible treatments,etc. After a biopsy at the Phoenix VA I was hospitalized due to the distance back home.It was then I had an opportunity to discuss my condition and at which time I discovered this "Dr" is either very ignorant or mentally ill.She suggested that what was seen on a PET scan was from an existing aneurysm causing irritation in the surrounding tissue and not a mass that other Drs had thought it to be.She suggested antibiotics as a treatment even though previous tests had ruled out any type of infection.This "Dr" is another example of the low quality Drs the VA attracts and hires.At this time I am in Las Vegas,Nv due to a false belief that medical would be better here.I have a abdominal aortic aneurysm of a needed repair size that apparently is partially encased by a mass and the symptoms of Lymphoma or perhaps another cancer. Treatment at this VA isn't possible due to a lack of quality surgeons and my care will have to come from the private sector
