  • 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.

Incredibly caring and brilliant. He is so skilled. He was recommended to us from another physician. We drive over 4 hours to see him and would do so in a heart beat. We have had other surgeons, but no one has taken as much time with us explaining. And his handiwork shows; two other docs were quite impressed with what/how he had gotten our son through a very complicated surgery, after what was botch work by another. Thank you Dr. E
