Vascular Surgery is the surgical specialty involving diseases of the arterial, venous, and lymphatic circulatory systems, exclusive of those circulatory vessels intrinsic to the heart and intracranial vessels. Specialists in this discipline must demonstrate not only the knowledge, skills, and understanding of the medical science relative to the vascular system, but also the acquisition of mature technical skills and surgical judgment.
