Dr. Thomas W Jernigan III has the following 2 specialties
- 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.

I was blessed to call Dr. Jernigan my doctor. What initially struck me was the care and compassion he shows his patients. He always took time to sit down, talk, and answer all of my questions. He conveyed genuine concern, and, though he was busy, I felt like I was important to him as a patient. He is is a very intelligent and skilled physician. I would recommend Dr. Jernigan to anyone looking for a caring, brilliant surgeon.
