William H. Julien, MD
Board Certified in Vascular and Interventional Radiology
Founder of South Florida Vascular Associates
Dr. William Julien received his medical degree from the Washington University School of Medicine in Saint Louis, MO and completed his residency in diagnostic radiology at the University of Minnesota Hospital in Minneapolis.
Dr. Julien is fellowship trained in interventional radiology from Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute. He is certified by the American Board of Radiology with a certificate of added qualification in interventional radiology. He is also a member of the Radiological Society of North America and the Society of Interventional Radiology, of which he is a member of the Practice Affairs Committee. Dr. Julien also serves as a member of the Council on Cardiovascular Radiology for the American Heart Association.
Dr. Julien is the President of South Florida Vascular Associates. He is also on staff at Northwest Medical Center in Margate.
Dr. Julien has had the privilege of being director of interventional radiology at Florida United Radiology, as well as chief of interventional radiology at a 3-hospital system here in South Florida. He has been principal investigator for several device trials for medical breakthrough procedures, including carotid artery stenting, and he was the first South Florida physician to implant the newly approved filter device upon its post-market approval.
Because his skills are so specialized, Dr. Julien has frequently been asked to speak at national endovascular meetings and has had the privilege of training many physicians on cutting-edge minimally invasive procedures. Dr. Julien is on the advisory boards of Boston Scientific, Diomed, and Medcomp.
His endovascular practice is unique in that, unlike most interventional radiologists, Dr. Julien sees his own patients and treats many of them right in his office in a sophisticated endovascular surgery suite – one of the first of its kind in the country.
Dr. Julien places a strong emphasis on the importance of patient education, offering his patients clear explanations on the details of a diagnosis, treatment plan, alternative treatments, and precisely what each patient should expect to experience. His practice has been highlighted as a model for the next generation of interventional radiology practices.
