Specialties

Dr. Robert S Binford 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.

Five Stars

We went with him because our pre-op consultation with him inspired confidence in him and his approach. We have not been disappointed on the post-operative visits either. The staff, kept in line by Karen McElroy, has also been very efficient, responsive, and caring.

Outstanding surgeon with compassion for the patient

I met Dr. Binford under some not so great circumstances. I needed a Quad Bypass done to save my life. My cardiologist recommended him to me. He said Dr. Binford was a excellent surgeon. My cardiologist was correct. He did a great job on my operation and helped me through the process of recovering from it. I cannot believe how fortunate I am to have found such a great heart team .
