Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bazan "Dr. Bazan's areas of clinical and research interests include the treatment of carotid artery disease/blockages with awake/cervical block and general anesthesia, carotid stenting, minimally invasive and open approaches to abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysms, and the minimally invasive treatment of leg blockages particularly in patients with critical limb ischemia. The care philosophy is to individualize the vascular treatment to the patient -- some do better with an endovascular intervention, others with a surgical approach, and others may only need best medical therapy."
