    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.

Aortic Valve Replacement

During my appointment with Dr. Christopher, I asked 15 questions pertaining to aortic valve replacement in order to determine the best medical procedure for me personally. Throughout the one hour visit, Dr. Christopher graciously answered every question I threw at him; not once did I get the impression he was anxious or in a hurry to end the session. I don't believe I could have found a more knowledgeable, compassionate or warm-hearted surgeon. I feel very "at ease" having Dr. Christopher perform surgery to remove the defective aortic valve in my heart, and to replace it with a new one. For anyone needing heart surgery, I highly recommend that you consider Dr. Tom Christopher who has many years’ experience as a heart surgeon. And, as a side note, I couldn’t ask for a surgeon with a better sense of humor or one who is easier to communicate with.

Dr. Christopher saved my life with a triple bypass and second surgery to rewire broken wire after a severe coughing spell. Many complications followed not related to surgery. I would not have anyone else operate on me.
