Get to Know: Vascular and Endovascular Surgeon William Robinson, MD

The complex health needs of the patient population: this is one of the reasons William Robinson, MD, chose to pursue a career in vascular and endovascular surgery. Vascular disease is often the product of hypertension, diabetes or high cholesterol. As a result, treating a vascular patient surgically requires collaboration with his or her primary care physician, as well as cardiologists, endocrinologists and other specialists, a process that Robinson relishes. In addition, his career choice enabled him to participate in an area of surgery that is notable for innovation. The steady stream of new endovascular devices is making it possible to treat a broader selection of patients in a less invasive manner with less morbidity and mortality.
