Vascular Surgery FAQ

What are the common vessels affected by vein disease?
  • Carotid Arteries (Found in the Neck)
  • Abdominal Aorta (Found in the Stomach)
  • Femoral Arteries (Found in the Legs)

Of course, many other vessels in the body can be affected, but these are some of the more commonly affected vessels. Many arteries become clogged with cholesterol or there is a narrowing of the artery by some other cause. Other arteries develop a weakness in their wall, which causes an outpouching, known as an aneurysm. These types of defects and diseases are what vascular surgery addresses.

What is vascular screening?

It is a painless test that checks for the buildup of fatty deposits (atherosclerosis) in the arteries of the body. Blood and oxygen are transported around the body by an extensive network of arteries and smaller vessels which together make up the cardiovascular system (or vascular system for short). Any blockages in these arteries can cause sudden and severe illness, even death, depending on where the blockage occurs.

A ‘screening’ is where a person is checked for signs of disease although they show no symptoms.

Our Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy department is one of the leading vascular centers in Southeast Houston. Our clinical providers are involved in the non-invasive evaluation and medical management of patients with a wide variety of vascular problems.

When needed, patients are also evaluated during our weekly conference with our multi-disciplinary team of physicians which includes colleagues from interventional radiology, cardiology, and neurology along with our associates in cardiothoracic surgery and neurosurgery.

Vascular surgeons have partnered with primary care physicians in managing patients with the vascular disease for more than 50 years. We look forward to working with you and caring for any peripheral vascular disease you may be experiencing.
