Vascular Surgery Q & A

What is vascular surgery?

Vascular surgery treats heart and blood vessel issues, such as thrombosis, varicose veins, aneurysms, and more. At Esperanza-Hope Primary Care, we offer minimally invasive procedures to eliminate diseased veins, repair veins, or reroute blood to healthier blood vessels.

Why might I need vascular surgery?

Esperanza-Hope Primary Care may recommend vascular surgery if you struggle with one or more of the following:

  • Carotid artery disease
  • Varicose veins
  • Thrombosis
  • Aneurysm 
  • Diabetes-related vascular diseases
  • Peripheral artery disease (PAD)
  • Visceral artery disease

Some vascular diseases can become life-threatening, which is why it’s important to see your provider at the first sign of unusual symptoms.

Signs of vascular disease include visible veins, non-healing wounds, skin discoloration, leg pain, or other types of ongoing discomfort. You might experience numbness, weakness, burning, swelling, or aching, as well as a heart attack or stroke.

What are the risk factors for developing vascular diseases?

While anyone can develop vascular diseases, common risk factors include:

  • Family history of vascular disease
  • Pregnancy
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Smoking
  • Poor dietary habits
  • Carrying excess body weight


Standing for long periods also makes it more likely for you to develop blood vessel problems.

What are the types of vascular surgery?

Esperanza-Hope Primary Care offers an array of vascular surgeries based on your needs. She may suggest open surgery to remove or treat diseased veins or endovascular surgery that uses a tiny tube and specialized instruments to treat blood vessel disorders.

She also provides radiofrequency ablation, laser treatments, or combinations of multiple treatments to remove, repair, or replace damaged tissues.

The doctor first numbs the treatment area to make each procedure comfortable and offers you a sedative, if needed, to help you relax.

What should I expect after vascular surgery?

After the procedure, follow the post-procedure instructions from our doctor. Take it easy and avoid strenuous activity until given permission. Adopt healthy habits at home and wear compression stockings during the healing process if our doctor asks you to. Attend follow-up visits with her to maximize your recovery.
