WHY CHOOSE MICHIGAN VASCULAR CENTER?
All of our Surgeons are focused 100% on Vascular Surgery, which is a rapidly changing field. We have been caring for the people of Genesee County day and night, 365 days a year since 1963. In an effort to bring innovative techniques to the community, we have been leading the advance of minimally-invasive endovascular procedures to address diseases that traditionally require extensive operations. In fact, over half of our work is now done using a minimally invasive technique.
In keeping our commitment to provide unparalleled vascular services to the community, Michigan Vascular Center voluntarily sought accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). In 2010 all locations received full accreditation. Since this demands a high level of commitment and effort, it challenges us to find better ways to serve our patients.
WHY CHOOSE A VASCULAR SURGEON?
Vascular surgery is a Nationally accredited surgical specialty involving the diagnosis and treatment of arteries, veins and lymphatic systems, exclusive of the heart and brain. The American Board of Surgery requires specific training in this specialty. Each vascular specialist at Michigan Vascular Center spent five years in general surgery residency. After becoming a general surgeon, they entered specialized training in vascular surgery. They are highly trained and specialized in the treatment of arterial and venous problems.
Unlike other specialties who perform a limited number of vascular procedures, Vascular Surgeons only treat vascular disease and injury. As such, we at Michigan Vascular Center have gained considerable insight into the diagnosis and treatment of vascular problems. We are privileged to share that insight with our colleagues and patients.
Our surgeons continually strive to bring state-of-the-art minimally-invasive vascular procedures to our patients; and if the need arises, are highly expert in performing open surgical repair of both veins and arteries.
Through the Michigan Vascular Research Department, we also participate in clinical trials, bringing possibilities to our patients rarely found outside of a University setting. As published proudly in our mission statement, we “exist to improve the quality of life” for our patients.
