Vascular Surgeons are Experts in Treating Blood Vessels

Physicians receive years of extensive training focused on their chosen specialty. For a vascular surgeon this includes years of school, training, residency, and fellowships for vascular disease treatments. Thus, no other specialty is better trained and more equipped to diagnose and treat vascular disorders than a vascular surgeon. Other specialties, including radiologists and cardiologists sometimes offer treatments for vascular disease however, their knowledge and treatment options will be limited and less specialized.

A vascular surgeon can help you achieve your ideal outcome from conditions like peripheral artery disease. There are numerous vascular diseases and Drs. Eghbalieh and Abi-Chaker have been trained in a wide range of rare disease conditions as well as common ones, like peripheral arterial disease (PAD).

Their experience and training give them the edge over other vascular disease specialists. They continuously bring new techniques, procedures, and innovations to vascular surgery, which has led them to offer every possible treatment option, including doing nothing if you don’t need it.

Our specialists will handle the consultation with the patient to decide on the best treatment options and procedures, not leaving out important ones because of incomplete training or financial gain.

With our state-of-the-art laboratory and cutting-edge technology and techniques, we are able to provide a quality of care that is unmatched in the Los Angeles area. See for yourself how a vascular surgeon can improve your life!

Not all surgeons who perform vascular procedures have received extensive vascular training or education.

What About a General Surgeon?

Many physicians claim to be interventionalists who perform vascular surgeries. These procedures may include vein procedures, lower extremity interventions, fistula procedures and more.

Many of the physicians who perform these procedures are not vascular surgeons and have not received extensive training or education on the subtle nuisances of these procedures. As a result, they may not have optimal outcomes.

Choosing a Vascular Specialist

When choosing a vascular specialist, you know you’re getting someone who has spent years learning about these diseases in depth and who is the authority on these conditions. Other specialties can’t provide the full range of treatment options and make these procedures as safe and suitable as possible.

Drs Eghbalieh and Abi-Chaker are able to minimize blood loss, days in hospital, risk of infection, heart or lung problems, and surgical scars by performing minimally invasive endovascular procedures. These procedures also allow patients to return to their normal activities more quickly and recover more rapidly. When endovascular options are no longer available or are not ideal, open or hybrid treatments are usually the only option. The expertise of a vascular surgeon is not simply knowing how to treat a condition; he or she can also offer additional solutions.

It’s true that not all vascular surgeons are alike and it is not accurate to say that other specialties cannot perform these operations. When it comes to experience and training, there is a huge disparity between Drs. Eghbalieh and Abi-Chaker and other specialists. They are proficient surgeons who are constantly at the forefront of cutting-edge technology, procedures, and methods in vascular surgery.

They are able to perform all vascular operations, which is why they are well-motivated. The reason we do not operate if we don’t need to is because of the sophistication of our lab and cutting-edge technological expertise. We can provide a high quality of care in our state-of-the-art facility using cutting-edge technology and procedures.

Our Vascular & Endovascular Surgeons

It's important to remember not all physicians are trained in advanced vascular and endovascular surgery. It’s a good practice to get multiple opinions and do research on the surgery and the physician.
