  • 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 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.

Heart Valve Surgery

Dr. Hockmuth was recommended to me as one of the finest heart surgeons available. I consulted with him, and he agreed to repair my aortic valve if possible, and if not, then to replace it using the Ross Procedure. I found him to be exceptionally patient in dealing with my questions, and completely skillful in carrying out my surgery. I would recommend hi to anyone in need of heart surgery.
