Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kwolek "We provide access to the best medical care for the management of both routine and complex vascular problems through a multi-disciplinary approach at the MGH and NWH Vascular Centers. This provides access to the latest medical therapy, and new minimally invasive and open vascular procedures when necessary. We also participate in numerous studies to develop and evaluate the best new treatments for vascular disease. Patients have access to care at regional clinics in Waltham and at NWH for convenience, in addition to our main campus in Boston. Patients can also undergo vascular procedures either at our excellent community hospital setting at Newton Wellesley Hospital or our at the Massachusetts General Hospital."
