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 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.
