What's the Difference Between Heart Care and Vascular Care?
Heart care involves medical care or surgical treatment for
problems that affect your heart and its arteries and blood vessels. Also called
cardiac care, it is provided by a cardiologist, pediatric cardiologist,
interventional cardiologist, electrophysiologist or a heart (cardiac) surgeon
or any combination of them depending on your diagnosis.

Vascular care involves medical management and surgical
treatment of problems affecting circulation outside the heart and brain,
especially the legs, arms, neck, and kidneys. Think of your vascular system as
a road map and your heart as the city center. A network of arteries, veins, and
capillaries carries blood to and from all areas of your body. When there are
roadblocks, vascular surgeons clear the way by removing blockages in arteries
and veins to restore normal blood flow through the network.
