Why does a cardiothoracic surgeon treat varicose veins?

Cardiothoracic surgery is a medical field that involves the lungs, esophagus, heart and blood vessels.

Varicose veins imply a violation of the veinous blood circulation in legs. The disease requires compulsory professional treatment, and in the absence of it, it can develop into other dangerous cardiovascular complications.

It is best to entrust leg health to a specialist who fully understands all the mechanisms of the human body's circulatory system - a cardiothoracic surgeon with many years of experience.
