Vascular surgery is a surgical speciality in which diseases of arteries, veins and lymphatic circulation are diagnosed and treated. Management may be by medical therapy, minimally-invasive catheter procedures and surgical reconstruction. The vascular surgeon is trained in the diagnosis and management of diseases affecting all parts of the vascular system except those of the heart and brain.
