Specialties

Dr. Nathan L Brightwell 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.

There are still some great doctors out there...

I have enormous respect for Dr. Brightwell. He's an excellent surgeon, and very personable and approachable as well. He actually took the time to call me on my cell phone to answer some questions I had - truly amazing, in this day and age. It's apparent that he cares about his patients, as well as for them.

If you just must face a cancer diagnosis, it will help a lot to have a surgeon who treats you like a real-life person and not just his problem for the day. Dr Brightwell actually hears what you say to him and immediately responds to any questions you have. I couldn't have asked for better.
