Vascular Surgery Q & A

Why would I need vascular surgery?

Vascular disease affects your arteries and veins, the pathways that carry blood to and from your heart.

Even if you don’t need vascular surgery initially, it’s important to seek a consultation with the experienced surgeons at Suffolk Vascular & Vein Center. The surgical team specializes in diagnosing and treating the conditions that affect your vascular health, including:

  • Stroke
  • Lymphedema
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Venous insufficiency
  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm
  • Carotid artery disease
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Peripheral vascular disease
  • Varicose and spider veins

Surgery is usually the right option for vascular conditions that can’t be treated with medications or other conservative treatments. Your Suffolk Vascular & Vein Center surgeon can determine if minimally invasive surgery is the next step based on your overall health and the severity of your condition.

What are the signs of vascular disease?

The medical team at Suffolk Vascular & Vein Center recommends early screenings for vascular disease to ensure treatment will be more effective. If you have risk factors for vascular disease, such as a family history, being a smoker, or having diabetes, your specialist may recommend routine vascular screenings as part of your preventive health care plan.

You should also schedule a consultation at Suffolk Vascular & Vein Center if you experience symptoms that may indicate vascular problems, such as:

  • Leg cramps
  • Swollen legs
  • Varicose or spider veins
  • Cold hands and feet

Some types of serious vascular disease, such as carotid artery disease or an abdominal aortic aneurysm, may not have any symptoms. The vascular surgeons offer the latest on-site diagnostic testing technology to identify the cause of your symptoms and to determine if you’re a good candidate for vascular surgery.

What are the benefits of minimally invasive vascular surgery?

Suffolk Vascular & Vein Center offers on-site surgical suites for your convenience and comfort. The surgical team can perform many surgeries on an outpatient basis using minimally invasive techniques, which require only small incisions to repair damage in your vascular system.

Because your surgeon only makes tiny incisions and uses specialized surgical tools, you can expect to recover faster than with open surgery. Other benefits of minimally invasive surgery include:

  • Less pain
  • Less bleeding
  • Smaller risk for infection
  • Reduced risk for scarring

In many cases, you also get the benefit of recovering from your procedure at home rather than in a hospital.
