Personal Statement

My practice style takes into account the whole patient and attempts to fit the therapy to the patient’s individual needs.  Many patients with vascular disease have complex medical histories and need their treatment plan to match their other medical problems in addition to their vascular issues.  In treating vascular disease, we are not only trying to extend life, but also attempting to maximize the quality of a patient’s life.  I believe this is generally best done through a multidisciplinary approach and with the use of both standard open surgical operations as well as cutting-edge minimally invasive techniques that are now available to treat a large number of vascular conditions.  My practice involves extensive use of these minimally invasive endovascular therapies to correct vascular issues in a way that minimizes the physical impact and need for prolonged recovery periods.
