Episode Summary

EDIT
Dr. Mark Adelman on Vascular Surgery
AIRED:
Dr. Mark Adelman discusses vascular surgery in an interview at NYU Medical Center. This program is part of FORA.tv's NYU Medical Center Wellness Series.Vascular surgery is the treatment of vascular disease throughout the human body. The vascular supply for the human body is broken down into the arteries and the veins. The arteries carry the blood down out to the periphery, and the veins return the blood from the periphery to the heart to maintain normal circulation.Diseases of the veins can be divided into the superficial veins and deep veins. The deep veins are most prone to clotting, and these clots can travel to the heart and lungs and may be life threatening. Separately, the superficial veins can be divided into large varicose veins and small spider veins. In any case, these veins may cause symptoms and are extremely unsightly. These are often treated using minimally invasive techniques.Mark A. Adelman, M.D. is Chief of the Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Surgery and an Associate Professor of Surgery.moreless
