Dr. Ali Aburahma has the following 2 specialties
- 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.

Self-verified patient of Dr. Ali Aburahma - Posted on March 5th, 2008
I have been Dr Aburahma's patient for over 10 years and have had six different surgeries by Dr Aburahma during that time. After a carotid artery procedure I had a stroke in recovery. He took me back into surgery and removed the clot and I had a complete recovery. He is a fantastic surgeon and gives full credit to God. Wouldn't have any other surgeon work on me.
