The vascular system is made up of all of the veins and arteries outside the heart, and it carries oxygen-rich blood to the other organs and to the arms and legs.
Vascular specialists diagnose and treat disorders of the vascular system – everything from spider and varicose veins to blocked arteries and aneurysms (bulge in an artery wall). Because of this, treatments vary from cosmetic to life-saving procedures.
