Due to the inherent complexity of the many vascular disorders, there may be more than one way of managing a particular condition. For this reason, when planning a procedure, Mr Franklin will discuss all the treatment options in a multidisciplinary team meeting, which includes vascular surgeons, radiologists, neurologists, anaesthetists, cardiologists, vascular technologists and specialist vascular nurses. This multidisciplinary approach ensures that that all perspectives are considered before recommending a course of action to a patient.
