- 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.

I went to Dr. Dowdy to have a lipoma removed. I had been to three other doctors and each diagnosed it as a lipoma and recommended immediate removal. Dr. Dowdy said he wouldn't touch the spot because it wasn't bad enough to remove. I have had it on my thigh for over three years. It causes intense pain whenever it is touched or bumped. I told this to him and he proceeded to tell me that it doesn't hurt. I told him that he doesn't know how it feels, it is my body. He then got very angry and used rude language. He basically told me that I didn't know what I was talking about and that he didn't care about my pain. I was disgusted at my treatment by Dr. Dowdy. He made me feel belittled and stupid. I highly suggest that you do not go to him to anything done. He is an extremely rude man who believes his word and opinion to be law. I hope for the sake of his practice he learns to treat patients with more respect.!
