Leon Josephs, M.D. is the Director of the Vascular Surgery Department at Saint Vincent Hospital.
His team includes three full-time, board certified, highly trained vascular surgeons. Dr. Josephs says his department "has great access to new technologies which allows them to stay on the cutting edge -- including laser technology to treat veins and endovascular technologies to treat aneurysms. Most importantly he feels they are very focused on evidence-based medicine based on medical literature and best practice modalities which allows great continuity and consistency in their practice, which ultimately benefits the patient."
Some of the procedures performed in the department include:
Abdominal Aortic Aneuysm - AAA
Carotid Endarterectomy for Carotid Stenosis
Femoropopliteal Bypass Surgery
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) and Claudication
