Vascular Surgery

About Vascular Surgery

Vascular surgery has undergone a major paradigm shift of the past years from open surgical techniques to minimally invasive techniques -- so-called endovascular surgery. Because these endovascular technologies are less invasive than older procedures, they are attractive to both patients and referring physicians. In addition, because they are gratifying to perform and often less morbid for patients, they have been embraced by vascular surgeons and other interventional specialists. There are many unresolved issues, however.
