Specialties

Dr. Michael S Meyer has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

INCOMPETENT HEART? SURGEON!

INCOMPETENT! heart Surgeon! Had to perform TWO additional open heart surgerys to repair faulty repair, resulting in HEAVY bleeding, extreme AFIB, that eventually resulted in pulmonary crisis, blood clots, stroke and death of patient. ALL because he chose to deviate from agreed upon surgery WITHOUT INFORMED CONSENT, that was not not needed!
