    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.

Retired CRNA and life partner of the patient

Jim, who had multiple problems with his heart, was scheduled, after multiple exams, to have aortic aneurysm dissection, as well as a pig valve replacement of his bicuspid valve. Jim was an 81 year old who gave special attention to his vascular strength with daily exercise. He was the most vibrant 81 year old I had ever witnessed. After all the pre-op testing, Jim never came off of bypass successfully. He was kept alive for 3 days on a ventilator only to fail. If only aneurysm repair through the groin had been elected, he most probably would have been rewarded with at least 5 more years of life. I question the heroics of doing two very radical procedures to an 81 year old - while it may have been ideal - do just what was necessary, to give him the extended life he so desired.

Father of Patient

my son Sean W Ham received excellent treatment of replacement Aorta valve and Aorta dissection repair from Dr Chen and I take my hat off to the amazing results. This operation took 9 hours and so far my son in continuing to recuperate and is now doing so at home. I want to thank Dr Chen and well as his amazing staff for giving us and our son a 2nd life.

The Best Heart Surgeon in this area!!

Dr. Chen took time with me to get to know me and my lifestyle and inform me of my condition and what needed to be done. He explained to me what he was going to do to correct my condition and what he needed me to do for the best results. He was very encouraging and understanding of what he was expecting of me. It is hard to find doctors in this day and time that will spend the time with their patient and put them in a positive frame of mind. He is Very confident about his abilities and what he can do to help his patients and puts them at ease. He assured me several times that he was going to take care of me and fix my condition. He listened to my concerns and was very supportive and informative with me and my family. I consider myself Very lucky to have been referred to him by my local cardiologist.
