Dr. Waldemar Sternbergh preformed surgery by inserting stints in both my right and left legs over 3 years ago, and I have been fine since the surgery. I would recommend Dr. Sternbergh to anyone, the surgery has really improved my ability to walk without pain.

Dr. Sternbergh has been my vascular surgeon for over five years. He has been a major contributor in improving my quality of life. After several surgeries and procedures, I am now able to keep up with my grand children all day long, that is truly a gift. Dr. Sternbergh has also been a huge inspiration for me to make healthier life choices moving forward. My family and I are extremely thankful to have found such a skilled surgeon and very caring person. Thanks Dr. Sternbergh, you are the BEST!

I trust him with my life. My family and I think the world of him. he's the best. Thank you Dr. Sternbergh. GOD BLESS
in Kenner, LA |
Dr. Sternbergh performed vascular surgery on both my legs. My blood vessels in my legs were clogged and blood circulation was poor or blocked. Before Dr. Sternbergh's surgical procedure, I had several operations on my legs which proved to only worsen the problems. The surgical procedure included removing and replacing blood vessels in both my legs; this restored blood circulation to my legs. The fact that I am walking today is a testament to Dr. Sternbergh's great vascular surgical skills.

Dr. Sternberg is so knowledgeable about his craft. His mannerism is so welcomed. I would recommend all my family and friends. Thank you
