Which doctors do endovascular treatment?

#

World over, it is well known that cardiologists and interventional radiologists perform these procedures of angiography and angioplasty. However, the new generation of vascular specialists who are trained in vascular surgery as well as endovascular procedures can definitely provide comparable results. The other major advantage of vascular specialists is that they can provide both surgical and endovascular options and choose the best one for the patient on an individual basis. New complex hybrid procedures which involve utilising both surgical and endovascular methods are also very well performed by a team of vascular specialists.
