Dr. Smith's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Smith "A Louisiana native, Dr. Smith received his medical degree from Louisiana State University - Health Science Center in New Orleans after earning a Bachelor of Science from LSU in Baton Rouge. He completed his internship and residency in General Surgery at University of Texas - Southwestern and Parkland Hospital in Dallas. He completed a fellowship in Vascular and Endovascular surgery at UT-Southwestern and is board certified by the American College of Surgeons. His interests include surgical and endovascular treatment of aortic aneurysms, peripheral and cerebrovascular disease, endovascular treatment of deep vein thrombosis and treatment of infected aortic and peripheral grafts."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Smith "I focus on treating the patient first and not recommending surgery soley based on a number or an x-ray finding. If the condition permits, conservative, nonopertaive therapy may be the best course of action. However when surgery is necessary we will work together and formulate the best treatment plan that manages your associated medical condiditons and your goals of care. Minimally invasive endovascular techniques for arterial and aneurysm repair are very safe and are often same day procedures."
