Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Dillavou "I am a vascular surgeon at Duke Regional Hospital and Duke University Hospital. There I treat the full spectrum of vascular surgery disorders and specialize in vein disease and vascular access a procedure that makes life-saving hemodialysis treatments possible. The exacting challenge of vascular surgery first drew me to the specialty. I like that the operations we do are quality-of-life oriented. We usually make people feel better and that is important to me. I also love being a long-term part of patients lives. When I meet with patients I get to know them in order to provide the procedure best suited for their lives. The reward is knowing I have made a patients life easier or more comfortable. I am a native of rural Minnesota. I like being outdoors with my two young sons riding bicycles and trying out new roller coasters."

What People Say About Dr. Ellen Dillavou, MD
Dr. Dillavou was my treating physician in Pittsburgh, PA. I've moved to NC and found out that she is now in NC. I will definitely be traveling to see her unless she has an office in Raleigh (where I work). I LOVE Dr. Dillavou and would definitely recommend her to anyone!
