Dr. Brotman O’Neill knew she wanted to specialize in a practice that would help the entire body. Vascular surgeons ensure blood circulation in your heart and brain is the best it can be. They’re trained for seven years on how the vascular system works along with the rest of your body. Treatments they provide include clearing up conditions that may cause blockages or buildup in the veins, arteries and lymphatic system.
In addition to diagnostic testing, some vascular surgeons can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.
Vascular surgeons can provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins. Dr. Brotman O’Neill likes to effectively eradicate varicose vein and spider vein disease.
