Care Philosophy

Vascular and Endovascular surgery cares for the patients’ circulatory system; arteries, veins and lymphatics. The vascular surgeon’s role is to maintain or improve blood flow through these systems which is done through a variety of ways. Care for the “vascular patient” often involves medical therapy combined with surgical and the surgical therapy is often minimally invasive. My philosophy involves caring for the patient, both from a medical and surgical perspective, providing the therapy best suited for each particular patient, with the goal of improving their quality of life.
