About Dr. Patricia E Burrows MD
Dr. Patricia E Burrows has the following 4 specialties
- Diagnostic Radiology
Radiologists help doctors get a closer look at what’s happening inside your body. If your primary care doctor wants to investigate your symptoms further, they may refer you to a radiologist to get an ultrasound or x-ray. Some radiologists specialize in mammography and breast imaging, which is who you see when you need a mammogram. A Radiologist can also determine if bones are broken or fractured after any kind of accident.
Radiologists are trained to perform MRIs and CT scans, both of which are used to determine the presence of diseases or disorders and help your doctor properly diagnose you. They can detect anything from tumors, bleeding and infections to bone and muscle disorders.
- Vascular and Interventional Radiology
Interventional radiologists, also known as vascular radiologists, use minimally-invasive imaging techniques to diagnose conditions in your organs and blood vessels. For example, if you need an angiography (an x-ray of the arteries) to diagnose a blockage in your blood vessels, your doctor will refer you to an interventional radiologist. They can, if needed, perform an angioplasty to open up the blocked passage.
They’re also trained to perform needle biopsies, insert stents, treat varicose veins and obstructions of the urinary tract (possibly due to kidney stones) and can help with dangerous postpartum bleeding. They treat various types of fibroids and embolization, which is a clot, air bubble or other blockage in the bloodstream. While the types of imaging procedures they perform are more invasive than x-rays done to identify broken bones, pain levels and recovery time are usually minimal.
- Pediatric Radiology
Pediatric radiologists specialize in using x-rays, MRIs, CT scans and ultrasounds to help provide the most accurate diagnosis to your child as possible. After they receive the image results, they work with your family physician or other specialist to give him or her a closer look at broken bones from an accident or recognize tumors, bleeding and infections that might be causing certain symptoms.
They focus on children as young as newborns and as old as teenagers and they have to be well-versed in the growth and development of children's bodies. This allows them to properly identify abnormalities at various ages and to work with your doctor on recommending the best treatment options.
- 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.

Just one word to describe this person: FANTASTIC!!!! Dra Burrows has been following my case study for the past 15 years, when she was still working in Boston,MA. As a foreign pacient she always tried her best to accommodate all my appoitments and never, never let me! I would still need more procedures and since I moved to Switzerland it is unbelivable hard to trust and find someoneclose to beat her experience, personality,...I will follow her wherever she goes.

I am an adult male that was seen by different doctors in my home state, none of which knew what I had. This led me to research my problem on my own. Luckily during this research I found Dr. Burrows. I visited her in Milwaukee for treatment of my venous malformation. Not only her but the entire staff was wonderful. I would strongly suggest having her evaluate you if you have been diagnosed with a vascular malformation.

She is a World Expert
Self-verified patient of Dr. Patricia E Burrows - Posted on July 28th, 2011
My son was treated at the Top Hospital in Neonatology in the U.S., however, they did not have enough experience in vascular malformations. Everyone in the United States kept pointing me to her. Luckily, she had moved to my own state, Texas. She was the only person that did a lymphangiogram and studied my son's lymphatic problem like no one has. She is one of the most valuable doctors in the country. She is kind, respectful and will follow up.Please know that some doctors treat the lymphatic malformation but no many can realy study the composition of the lymphatic system in the body prior to treatment. She does the two.
