I've been providing the full spectrum of care from the initial consultation all the way through to recovery for patients in the North State for 14 years. Working in both the hospital and in the clinic setting allows me to care for patients with acute surgical needs and with chronic vascular conditions.

Dr. Hatter says...

My training and experience allows me to offer patients with vascular disease both endovascular and open surgical options. I also have special interest and training in managing access for dialysis. I treat common general surgery conditions including hernias and gallbladder disease and as Mercy's Director of Trauma I care for some of the North State's most critically ill patients.

Dr. Hatter says...

I've been providing endovascular treatments for aneurysmal and occulsive vascular disease for 18 years. I'm a Fellow in the American College of Surgeons, am a member of the Society for Vascular Surgery, and am certified in Advanced Trauma Life Support.
