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. Affleck performed open heart surgery on me. His staff was extremely professional, helpful and approachable. They educated me and answered my questions completely. Dr Affleck was the same, answering all of my questions (and I brought a list, both pre and post surgery). The nurses at the hospital commented on the extra measures he took in surgery...which I wouldn't have known about, but I truly appreciated. Although his partner (who checked on me in the hospital when Dr Affleck was out) could use some help in the bedside manner department, I would recommend Dr Affleck to anyone.
Dr Affleck rocks. :)

Dr, Affleck went out of his way to get me into surgery with very little notice; that is he fit me into an already full surgical schedule to expedite my condition. He cares. Also the surgical nurses are very caring and do a great job. The office staff is also terrific, helpful, and seem to care about the patient P.S. They have snacks in the office. I really appreciate that.

My experience was that Dr. Dave Afflecks highest priority is to improve the lives of his patients. He understands their concerns and is the ultimate patient advocate. To that end, Dr. Affleck helps his patients AND their families to understand all of the surgical and medical options available to them. Dr. Affleck is a nationally recognized and respected surgeon with over 16 years experience practicing cardiothoracic surgery, specializing in minimally invasive surgery, with the hope to improve post surgery healing. Dr. Affleck is actually the only one in Utah currently certified to perform the Mini-Maze procedure. He not only conducts this surgery at MountainStar hospitals along the wasatch front, Dr. Affleck also trains surgeons around the country in this new and innovative approach. Most people dont know these things about Dave, and I just thought I would share what a special type of surgeon we have here in our own back yard.
