Frequently Asked Questions
Vascular disease occurs when blockages in veins, vessels and arteries obstruct the flow of blood to the heart, arms, or legs. These blockages are typically attributed to a buildup of plaque and cholesterol over time. According to the American Heart Association, more than half of all U.S. adults had some form of cardiovascular disease in 2019. If left untreated, vascular disease can lead to serious consequences like stroke and heart attack.
A vascular surgeon specializes in the treatment of the vascular system (although not the heart itself) and circulatory disorders, including vascular disease. Our team of AVS board-certified vascular surgeons are skilled in performing both open and minimally-invasive surgical treatment options. They also oversee state-of-the-art testing and imaging to assess the severity of cases.
AVS offers the following state-of-the-art diagnostic tests and imaging to evaluate your vascular needs. These are conveniently performed either in our in-office Vascular Lab or one of our Vascular Intervention Suites (VIS):
  • Carotid Duplex: arteries of the neck are examined with ultrasound and Doppler to check for blockage
  • Venous Duplex: veins of the arms and/or legs are examined with ultrasound and Doppler in order to detect blood clots or weakened valves in the veins
  • Angiogram: a contrast dye-based X-ray procedure using a thin, flexible catheter to help diagnose and treat arterial or venous disease
Complete Vascular Care Alabaster, AL

A vascular surgeon is a surgical specialist who cares for patients with diseases that affect the arteries, veins, and lymphatic systems exclusive of the heart and intracranial (within the brain) circulations. Hardening of the arteries or atherosclerosis is a common cause of vascular disease. Specialists in this field perform open operations, endovascular catheter-based procedures, and non-invasive vascular testing and interpretations.

Common problems treated include stroke prevention by managing arterial blockages in the neck and upper chest, revascularization of upper and lower limbs for poor circulation, management of aneurysms such as occur in the abdomen and elsewhere, vascular trauma, and varicose veins. Treatment also includes angioplasty—stenting of arterial blockages, repair of abdominal aneurysms by less-invasive endovascular techniques—as well as medical management of vascular disorders. Vascular surgeons are board certified in general surgery and then complete additional training and testing in vascular surgery.
