A vascular surgeon is responsible for dealing with diseases that affect your arteries, veins, and lymphatic vessels. Together, they form your circulatory system, sending oxygen, nutrients, and blood around your body.
There is a strong link between vascular diseases and lifestyle; at least 80% of patients with vascular problems are either current or ex-smokers. Being physically active and quitting smoking can significantly reduce your risk of stroke or heart disease. Hillsborough Private Clinic’s consultants can provide you with an accurate diagnosis and advice on treatment, surgical options, and lifestyle changes.
