Hello Gurneet,

Welcome to the Pain Mangement Forum. I see you have been a member of MedHelp since 2003 but I do not see any information or other posts. I was attempting to learn a bit about your condition.

Jaybay has summed it a vascular surgeon well. They treat vascular diseases. Vascular disease includes any condition that affects the circulatory system. Vascular disease ranges from diseases of your arteries, veins, and lymph vessels to blood disorders that affect circulation.

Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) or Peripheral artery disease (PAD) and atherosclerosis examples of diseases of the blood vessels. They more commonly effect the  lower extremities or the heart's circulatory system but they can effect any vessel. Arm Artery Disease effects the hands. Atherosclerosis is the main cause of arm artery disease.

Raynaud’s disease and Buerger’s disease are two more commonly known PAD's or arm artery diseases that effect the hands.

If you could provide us with more details we may be able to offer more specific information. Please let us know how you are doing.

Peace,
~Tuck

A vascular surgeon specializes in the treatment of veins and their various disorders.  For example, if someone has varicose veins that are severe enough to cause blood clots, a vascular surgeon will treat that condition - among many others. Can you tell us what condition you have that needs a vascular surgeon?
