Patient Care Philosophy

Vascular surgery is an evolving specialty. As new endovascular techniques are developed, we are challenged to determine which treatment is best suited for which patient.

My patient care philosophy is to provide the optimal intervention, whether open surgery or endovascular, tailored to each individual patient. Being trained in both sets of techniques, I am able to guide patients through the treatment decisions for their vascular disease.
