Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Fitzgibbons "Dr. Fitzgibbons was born to be a doctor. His father and grandfather-in-law were well known doctors in Nebraska. Five of his brothers and his one sister are also doctors. After graduating from medical school, he migrated to Los Angeles for surgical training at USC, attaining the coveted position for Resident Supervisor in surgery. A year of vascular surgery fellowship followed and then he began practice at the Hospital of the Good Samaritan, a closely affiliated USC hospital, where he has been chairman of the Department of Surgery since 1998. In 2006 his fellow physicians honored him when he was named physician of the year, his proudest award. The early results of endovenous procedures were published just after 2000 and after some skepticism he realized that this minimal invasive approach would replace surgical treatment of venous disease. For the last four years he has concentrated on out-patient venous disease and the results have been so gratifying and the patients so satisfied that he is glad he made this effort to bring modern venous disease management to downtown Los Angeles."
