The Vascular Specialist Profession

A vascular (vein) specialist is one who specializes in the treatments of vein and the lymphatic systems, or anything to do with blood vessels. Vascular specialists are also better known as vascular surgeons. To become a vascular surgeon you must complete five years of general surgery residency plus two years of vascular surgery training. Two of the first vascular surgeons were Nikolai Korotkov, a Russian surgeon, who is known for founding some of the first surgical procedures, and Robert Paton, who was one of the first Australian vascular surgeons who also helped the vascular surgery field become its own specialty.
