Specialties

Dr. Alberto B Pochettino has the following 1 specialty

  • Vascular Surgery

    Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
    They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.

Five Stars

Four years ago, Dr. Pochettino saved my life. I needed emergency surgery for a congenital heart defect and was advised by my cardiologist that Dr. Pochettino was the only doctor in the area (Phila) who had experience performing the surgery I needed. After meeting with him, I knew I was in "good hands" and the surgery was a success. If I ever need the surgery again, I will want him as my surgeon again, no matter how far I have to travel.

He saved my husband's life

Dr. Pochettino is an excellent surgeon. We were fortunate to have him be the doctor to conduct emergency surgery on my husband. When I say that he saved my husband's life, I truly mean that. There are not enough superlatives for him. He is very caring as well.
