Vascular Surgery Team

The vascular surgery team collaborates with our colleagues in cardiology, internal medicine, neurology, interventional radiology, and podiatry in order to offer each patient a multidisciplinary, yet individualized, diagnostic assessment and therapeutic plan. Our unique philosophy is that only when a patient is evaluated by a health care team that can provide medical, conventional open surgical and minimally invasive endovascular therapy will that patient be guaranteed of receiving the most appropriate remedy for his or her problem. The patient is our focus.
