- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.
- 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.

Wonderful surgeon!! Great to have his expertise and his team here in Paris, Illinois. I had no idea what vascular disease was until it hit me. So much technology and options for care. I researched him and his team of vascular doctors. All are well known and respected around the country. Recommend them to anyone with vascular problems!
Exceeded My Expectations

Dr. Hussain is extremely attentive and easy to talk to and invites your questions and comments. Has a great staff and is nationally recognized as a quality vascular surgeon. What's there not to like? His expertise certainly has made my quality of life better. I had arteries in both legs severely occluded and could not walk at a quick pace without calf pain and cramping. Typical PAD symptoms. After angioplasty and stent placement my walking pain is completely gone. This is a vascular surgeon that I trust and I feel completely justified in recommending him to anyone with vascular issues no matter how complicated.

Dr Hussain is an excellent surgeon! My brother had a ruptured aneurysm and he saved my brother's life! We had no one in the Eastern Illinois area for this kind of work until he and his team came from Peoria. Our family is very grafteful for him and his care! Recommend him to anyone with any vascular problem.
