Specialties

Dr. Mark J Alkire has the following 3 specialties

  • Thoracic Surgery (Cardiothoracic Vascular Surgery)
  • 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.

  • Trauma Surgery

    Trauma surgeons treat patients who come to emergency rooms and require surgery after any kind of accident. They know how to act quickly, assess the patient’s condition, and decide on a course of action. They work fast to coordinate with other physicians and specialists in the hospital if needed, such as neurosurgeons and radiologists, so they can properly diagnose the injury and stabilize patients.
    Common trauma injuries include bleeding, burns, brain or other internal injuries, shock and loss of limbs. Because they treat patients in traumatic situations, they’re also typically skilled in offering some level of emotional support to help the patient cope with confusion and grief that may result from their accident.

patient and nurse

I am a nurse and work in a hospital where Dr Alkire does. His bedside manner and interactions with his patients, their families, nursing staff and fellow doctors speaks volumes of the type of person he is. He always shows concern and compassion to everyone. When I needed vascular surgery on my leg he was the vascular surgeon I went to not only for his bedside manner but, because of the caliber of his surgical skills. I was very pleased to find that he was no less caring and compasionate in his office and took time with me, explaining the procedure, pre and post testing that was needed, recovery and what follw up would be needed. My experience from start to finish was outstanding!!
