Vascular Surgery Expert Witness

Vascular Surgeon operating during microvascular surgeryA Vascular Surgery expert witness is a Vascular Surgeon who testifies on topics involving arteries and veins such as occlusion, aneurysm, and trauma.  Vascular Surgery is a subspecialty of General Surgery involving the surgical treatment of vascular (i.e. blood vessel) disease. Common vascular procedures include aneurysm repair, carotid endarterectomy (i.e. clearing of the carotid artery), treatment of peripheral vascular disease (via angioplasty or bypass), and varicose vein surgery (via vein stripping, sclerotherapy, and ablation). Board Certification in Vascular Surgery requires completion of a General Surgery residency followed by a fellowship in Vascular Surgery. A Vascular Surgery expert witness should always be certified by the American Board of General Surgery with a certificate in Vascular Surgery.

Litigation against Vascular Surgeons is less common than having a Vascular Surgeon opine on causation involving other physicians who fail to diagnose and treat vascular conditions.  Amongst these conditions, the failure to diagnose and/or treat peripheral artery disease and limb ischemia is perhaps the most common area of litigation.
