What Is The Difference Between Cardiac And Vascular?

Cardiologist Tech

Many people assume these two descriptions are the same, but there is a significant difference. Knowing the various health specializations and their correct terminology will be beneficial when it’s time for you to choose a doctor.

Vascular surgeons and cardiologists are quite specialized in their respective fields, but they are not the same specialization. Cardio refers to issues of the heart whereas vascular refers to issues of the circulation system outside the heart. A cardiovascular specialist is an expert in the vascular system of the heart.

What a Cardiologist Does

You probably refer to these highly trained physicians as a “heart doctor,” and you would be correct. A cardiologist is skilled in diagnosing and treating any type of heart disease as well as cardiovascular conditions.

Treatments include medications, dietary recommendations, and ordering diagnostic tests. If these steps don’t reveal the nature of a patient’s problem, the cardiologist will refer to a cardiovascular surgeon like Dr. Nader H. Chadda at Advanced Heart & Vascular Associates for a surgical solution.
