Vascular Surgery

Introduction:

The vascular surgery department at Aster Hospitals addresses the patients with vascular conditions. A specialized team of doctors is assigned to assess, diagnose and treat patients.

Most of the vascular-related problems can be treated without invasive procedures, surgery, or radiology. The department along with various specialties strives to deliver a comprehensive and world class vascular care to patients.

A vascular surgeon plays a significant role in the recovery of a patient by providing suggestions related to diet, exercise, and a healthy lifestyle. Generally, the future risk of a heart attack can thwart through medications and diet.
