I was just diagnosed with Celiac Artery Compression Syndrome following a CT Angio. I am being referred to a vascular surgeon but would like to be sure to talk to one that is familiar with the syndrome. I live in San Diego and have access to the doctors at UCSD. How do I find one that will best be able to help me.

Hello @cornishrex,

@cornoshrex, how are you managing your symptoms currently?

Welcome @cornishrex! When you see your vascular specialist ask them how may surgeries they do a year, what surgical approach they use and why? I sometimes go through the list of doctors at a medical center, many have bios and search what their area or interest is. Another way is go to google scholar and see who has published in the area of Celiac Artery Compression Syndrome. Always ask questions, it is ok to get second and third opinions. You will know when you find the doctor that best suits you.
