Vascular Surgery

Allegiance Health vascular surgeons specialize in the treatment of disorders of the blood and blood vessels. They perform surgery on nearly all veins and arteries, with the exception of blood vessels within the brain and heart.

Vascular surgeons may insert stents (tiny wire-mesh tubes placed into coronary arteries to keep them open) or make other surgical repairs involving blood flow function. They also treat pulmonary embolisms (blood clots lodged in the lungs), deep-vein thrombosis or DVT (a blood clot in a deep vein) and varicose veins. Treatment can include surgery, minimally invasive procedures, medicine and exercise.

The best chance of surviving a heart attack is to act quickly. Do not wait for symptoms to go away. Call 9-1-1 immediately, and chew an aspirin while waiting for the ambulance to arrive.
