Understanding Your Cardiovascular System

New York NY Vascular Surgeon Dr. Alan Benvenisty

Dr. Alan Benvenisty Vascular Surgeon is passionate about your cardiovascular system. He offers an extensive list of options to help diagnose and get to the bottom of all of your cardiovascular needs. Your vascular needs are linked to your larger cardiovascular system. Understanding this system helps us help you.

Your cardiovascular system, or circulatory system is responsible for transporting blood to the various tissues throughout the body. It is comprised of the heart and blood vessels such as arteries, veins and capillaries. 

You actually have two main systems within the circulatory system. The pulmonary circulation is a short ring from the heart to the lungs and back again. Your systemic circulation (this is the system you usually relate to when you think of your circulatory system) directs blood from the heart to all other parts of your body and back again. 

Your heart is the biggest component of your circulatory system. It’s the director! It receives messages from your body to say whether to pump more or less blood. It usually beats 60 to 100 beats per minute. It can go much faster if necessary. Your heart beats about 100,000 times a day.

When your heart and cardiovascular system are working well, you can sometimes take for granted what a great gift it is to you and your body. However, when a problem arises due to a malfunction or issue in the cardiovascular system, it’s time to become informed and find a doctor like Dr. Alan Benvenisty to help you get on the right track to heart health.

Dr. Benvenisty was excellent and helped us with my husband's extensive leg swelling related to diabetes. We had another specialist who didn't help us last year. We're planning to stay with Dr. Benvenisty now! He's detailed oriented, matter-of-fact and friendly. An excellent doctor I would strongly recommend.


Dr. Benvenisty treated my mother in the ER during this time of the covid outbreak. He was a part of a fantastic team of doctors that were brought in to find out what was ailing my mother. He is first and for most experienced in many areas as my mother was diagnosed with pancreatitis. Although he transferred the surgery to another member of his team, he gave me his mobile and kept me informed of her condition/diagnosis at a time where I was unable to be with her myself because of this pandemic. His heart, compassion, understanding and bedside manner are things that I will not ever forget. He is an excellent doctor and truly a great human being.

Howard L.

Dr. Benvenisty is the most caring physician that I know. He is brilliant, highly ethical and trustworthy. His knowledge extends well beyond his specialty. He makes referrals to the best possible physicians. I know Dr. Benvenisty for 25 years and have complete confidence in him.
