You may not realize it, but your vascular system is one of the most vital systems in your body. It consists of a network of arteries, veins, and capillaries that transport blood to and from your heart. It’s responsible for delivering oxygen and nutrients to your cells and removing waste products from your body.
When something goes wrong with your vascular system, it can seriously impact your health. That’s why it’s important to see a vascular surgeon if you are experiencing any problems with your veins or arteries.
Here are five reasons why you should see a vascular surgeon:
Diagnose and Treat Vein Disorders
You may have a vein disorder if you are experiencing pain, swelling, or cramping in your legs. Varicose veins are common but can be more than just a cosmetic problem. Left untreated, they can lead to blood clots, ulcers, and other serious health problems. A vascular surgeon can diagnose and treat vein disorders, so you can live without pain and discomfort.
Diagnose and Treat Arterial Diseases
Atherosclerosis is a common arterial disease when plaque builds up in the arteries and restricts blood flow. This can lead to heart attack, stroke, and other serious health problems. A vascular surgeon can diagnose arterial diseases and offer treatments to improve or restore blood flow.
Improve Blood Circulation
Poor circulation can lead to many health problems, including fatigue, cold feet and hands, erectile dysfunction, and more. If you are experiencing poor circulation, a vascular surgeon can offer treatments to improve blood flow and help you feel better.
Amputations are sometimes necessary when arteries become blocked and the tissue dies due to poor circulation. A vascular surgeon can offer treatments that can prevent amputations by restoring blood flow to the affected area. These treatments can also help improve the quality of life for those who have already had an amputation by reducing phantom limb pain.
Improve Your Quality of Life
Living with a vascular disorder can be difficult. Pain, swelling, cramping, fatigue, and poor circulation – are just a few symptoms that can make everyday activities difficult or even impossible. Seeing a vascular surgeon can help improve your symptoms so that you can live a normal, active life again.
