Specialties

Dr. Mark J Epler has the following 2 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.

Triple Bypass Recipient

After failing a stress test, I found myself unexpectedly under Dr. Epler's care. He is a consummate professional, keeping me filled in on what was needed and what to expect. He performed triple bypass surgery on me exactly two weeks ago today, and my recovery has thus far been perfect due to the excellent work of Dr. Epler. I can not recommend him highly enough. I will be able to return to work, on a work from home basis, in about five more days. Dr. Epler, his staff and the Lancaster General Hospital system have all been highly competent and efficient throughout my ordeal.

His caring and compassionate bedside manner along with his surgical expertise makes him top notch. Our family would like to thank Dr. Epler for giving Dad back to us, with many more years to go. Would recommend him to everyone.
