Dr. Brian I Watanabe 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.

Dr Brian saved my life

I had a ruptured appendix. 2004. The hospital I was at wanted to send me home. Something was wrong.. In walked dr. Brain , he couldn't figure it out either, so he said maybe exploratory surgery??!! What I said, let's do it. Great thing he did the surgery.. My inside abdominal cavity was a mess from the appendix.. Thank you dr. I'm alive and now we're living in Hawaii.
