    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.

Five Stars

Dr. Gaines did surgery on my husband in 2014. He had to have his esophagus removed, it was because his esophagus had torn. We couldn't have chosen a better Dr to do the job. He is a wonderful man who cares deeply about his patients with a serious attitude about their health. His work has been complimented by other doctors we have seen many times, in these past few years during my husbands recovery. I would highly recommend him to friends and family.
