How to Choose the Right Vascular Surgeon For You

The decision to have vascular surgery should never be taken lightly. Yet selecting the right vascular surgeon for your procedure is often the most daunting part of the entire process. With so many providers providers in the Boca Raton area, choosing the right vascular surgeon for you is simply a matter of certification, expertise and comfort.

Your Vascular Surgeon Should Be Board Certified

Most general surgeons can perform vascular procedures with success. However, a board certified vascular surgeon or a vascular surgeon who has been board certified by the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons to perform vascular surgery is preferable to a general practitioner. These professionals receive additional training and meet additional requirements beyond becoming a general surgeon that give them a designation as an expert in vein and vascular treatment. 

Your Vascular Surgeon Should Be Busy

Highly sought after vascular surgeons are busy because they are experts in their field. Choose a professional who performs hundreds if not thousands of your desired procedure per year. Even complex procedures become routine in the hands of a busy vascular surgeon. Remember, this person will work to correct blood flow in different areas of your body. Rather than trustins something so precious to an inexperienced or readily available surgeon, choose one who is in demand.

Your Comfort Matters

Most people are ready to sacrifice their level of comfort with a professional in favor of board certifications and reputation. However, it is important that you are comfortable with anyone who will perform surgery on your body. If you are made to feel uncomfortable in a surgeon’s office or if your personalities simply do not match, consider choosing another practitioner. The best vascular surgeons will offer free initial consultations that allow you to meet the doctor, his staff and other providers in the office that will treat you.
