Y.H. Salem, MD, FACS, runs a state-of-the-art medical practice specializing in vascular surgery, acid reflux surgery, and general surgery, at his offices in Huntington Beach, Anaheim, and Foothill Ranch California.
Dr. Salem is a 1995 graduate of Wayne State University, where he received his medical degree in the top third of his class. He went on to participate in a three-year general surgery residency at Cleveland's Huron Hospital and a subsequent two-year residency at Pittsburgh's Western Penn/Temple University Hospital. During that time, Dr. Salem's work earned him much recognition, including the designation, "Resident of the Year" and honors for excellence in research.
With over 20 years of professional experience under his belt, he leads a friendly staff and employs cutting-edge technology to provide cosmetic and health benefits to patients dealing with varicose veins and spider veins stemming from a variety of causes.
Dr. Salem currently maintains membership in several professional organizations, including the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES), the American Medical Association and the local Orange County Medical Association. He is a fellow at the American Board of Surgery and also a long-time member of the prestigious American College of Surgeons - an association of peers that has been raising the standard for surgical education and practice for more than 100 years.
At the practice’s warm, welcoming offices, they provide a host of innovative treatments for vascular disease, including ultrasound-guided procedures, injections, and laser treatments. Dr. Salem always takes considerable effort to minimize any scarring following medical procedures and maintains constant monitoring to evaluate the progress of his patients through recovery. They’re also highly skilled when it comes to providing surgical treatment for many other conditions, such as intestinal obstructions, lipomas, gallstones, and appendicitis.
One of the central tenets of Dr. Salem’s care is spending as much time as possible with each patient to develop individualized treatment plans and to allow time for addressing questions and concerns. Patient education is also essential and foundational to the practice’s overall approach to care, as Dr. Salem and the staff help each patient understand everything about their condition and treatment options.
For more than 20 years, patients have turned to Dr. Salem because of his reputation for extraordinary treatment outcomes and exceptional patient care. He is committed to restoring the appearance of varicose and spider veins using medical techniques that are as minimally invasive as possible. That commitment has led to spectacular transformations for thousands of patients - many of whom now bare their legs with confidence, rather than hide them in embarrassment.
