Dr. David S Bjerken 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.

At the age of 36, I experienced my first surgical procedure. From the first visit with Dr. Bjerken, I was very expressed with him. He explained each process on how it would be completed from start to finish. With that understanding it put me at ease for the Cholecystectomy. Kudos to Dr Bjerken and his PA! It only took a week to recover and two weeks later there were no incision marks visible. I had the single incision cholecystectomy and highly recommend it. The entire staff was very professional! Thanks to you all.
