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.

Great overall experience. It is seldom that the actual surgeon rounds on their patient every day. Usually the "tea m" does that for the. However, Dr Leavitt came to see me every day. Impressive!!
If it weren't for Dr Leavitt, I believe I would have gotten a mitral valve replacement and not a repair. He had the expertise to repair and a willingness to take the extra time and care needed to repair my very damaged valve, which happened to be a Barlow's valve. I would highly recommend this surgeon to anyone needing mitral valve repair. I had the repair done Thursday and was home by Monday. Dr Leavitt is friendly, knowledgeable, and very confident- what more could you ask for in a heart surgeon?
