Vascular surgeons evaluate and treat diseases, conditions, and disorders of the blood vessels. These specialists complete extensive medical training that allows them to diagnose and treat a wide variety of vascular diseases. In addition, they are qualified to interpret a number of diagnostic tests that are used to diagnose disorders and diseases of the vascular system. At Western Vascular in Mesa, AZ, we have two highly trained vascular doctors on our staff. Dr. Mitar Vranic and Dr. Henry Tarlian offer patients in the Phoenix and Scottsdale metro areas some of the most technologically advanced procedures available to prevent and treat vascular disease.
The vascular system is made up of the vessels that transport blood through the human body. The vessels of the vascular system include arteries, veins, and capillaries. Each component serves a unique purpose. The arteries carry oxygenated blood from the heart to the body, whereas the veins move de-oxygenated blood from the body back to the heart. Capillaries are tiny blood vessels that enable the exchange of oxygen and other nutrients between blood and surrounding tissues. These vessels form a vast and complex network throughout the entire human body. As such, vascular surgeons must receive specialized training so that they can effectively diagnose and treat vascular disease. In the United States, vascular surgeons typically complete a two-year vascular surgery fellowship after their five-year general surgery residency. Both Dr. Vranic and Dr. Tarlian received their vascular surgery training through this traditional route. Dr. Vranic has completed two vascular fellowships and has published multiple articles in medical journals about vascular diseases. He also helped developed several medical devices that are in use today for the treatment of vascular diseases. As such, Dr. Vranic has been recognized as one of Arizona’s Top Doctors in 2005-2006, 2008-2010, 2012-2013, and Dr. Tarlian has been recognized as a Top Doc in 2008-2010.
Vascular surgeons are trained to diagnose and treat diseases that affect all parts of the vascular system, excluding those of the heart and brain, which require additional specialized training. These surgeons may use medical therapy, surgical reconstruction or placement of grafts, and/or minimally invasive catheter procedures to treat diseases and disorders of the vascular system. At our vascular surgery center in Mesa, AZ, our surgeons routinely treat patients with carotid disease, venous insufficiency, end stage renal disease, aneurysms, Klippel-Trenaunay Syndrome, and peripheral vascular disease. In addition to treating these serious disorders, we operate our vein treatment center to help patients treat varicose veins and spider veins. Not only are varicose and spider veins unsightly, but they can also cause significant discomfort and hinder proper blood circulation through the vascular system. Our team attempts to use the most advanced approaches when treating disorders of the vascular system. We offer the latest in laser vein treatment solutions to our patients seeking to treat varicose and spider veins at our vein treatment center.
Our vascular specialists Dr. Mitar Vranic and Dr. Henry Tarlian are uniquely qualified to treat the vascular disorders of patients in the Phoenix area. Their training and experience make them a top choice when looking for a surgeon to perform vascular surgery or to treat a vein disorder. Although radiologists and cardiologists can perform these procedures, they have limited training and should not be your first choice when deciding how you want to treat your vein disorder. If you need to undergo vascular surgery or are considering treatment for your varicose and/or spider veins, please contact our Mesa office to set up an initial consultation.
