  • Vascular Surgery
  • Physician What's this? A physician, or doctor, is extensively trained to diagnose and treat complex medical problems. Often, physicians focus their practice on certain disease categories, treatment methods or patient types. Physicians can diagnose and treat illness, prescribe medication, offer medical consultation and advice, perform surgery and more.

About Me

For me, patient care is a continuum of mental, physical and spiritual support throughout a patient's lifetime and in a sense, is a lifetime pact between the patient and physician.

The focus of my practice is on vascular disease – both medical and surgical – with an emphasis on surgical care. Specifically, I concentrate on all aspects of vascular surgery, including endovascular surgery.
I became interested in vascular surgery because it stimulated me more than any other aspect of surgery. It’s very challenging and requires a commitment to performing very technically precise operations.

In my spare time, I enjoy relaxing with my family, reading books about the Civil War and attending Ohio State football games.
