Dr. Swee’s Specialized Endovascular Surgical Skills Enhances Treatment Options for Patients Suffering from Complex Vascular Diseases
COCONUT CREEK, FL (October 12, 2011 ) – South Florida Vascular Associates (www.southfloridavascular.com), an office-based clinical practice specializing in image-guided, minimally invasive endovascular surgeries, today announced that Warren Swee, MD, MPH, a fellowship trained and board certified Vascular and Interventional Radiologist has joined the practice.
Dr. Swee will work with William Julien, MD, Medical Director of South Florida Vascular Associates, to offer cutting-edge endovascular surgical techniques to treat patients who suffer from a wide array of vascular diseases including Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), a condition in which plaque build-up causes a narrowing of the arteries which diminishes normal blood flow to the lower extremities.
People with vascular diseases are typically treated in a hospital setting. South Florida Vascular Associates (SFVA) is one of few office-based, endovascular practices in the region that can treat patients outside of the hospital. “I am very privileged to have the opportunity to work with Dr. Julien and to provide high quality care in a well-developed office based practice”, said Dr. Swee. SFVA is equipped with 3 in-office endovascular surgical suites where our physicians perform over 1,000 image-guided endovascular surgeries a year. This is done in the comfort of a state-of-the-art facility using the latest technology to treat vascular conditions. “We are pleased that Dr. Swee has joined our practice”, said Dr. Julien. “The addition of Dr. Swee’s specialized training in the treatment of advanced limb threatening peripheral artery disease adds to our vision of offering the most comprehensive endovascular services in a fully-equipped, private, comfortable setting to our patients”, said Dr. Julien.
Dr. Swee earned his medical degree and Master’s of Public Health degree from the George Washington School of Medicine and Public Health. He completed his residency through the Vascular and Interventional Radiology Clinical Pathway at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA., where he was awarded Clinical Resident of the Year. Dr. Swee then completed a fellowship in Vascular & Interventional Radiology from the University of Virginia Health System, where he later served as Assistant Professor of Radiology.
He is board certified in Vascular and Interventional Radiology by the ABR (American Board of Radiology) and board certified in Endovascular Medicine by the ABVM (American Board of Vascular Medicine). He is also a member of the American Medical Association, the Society of Interventional Radiology , the Society of Vascular Medicine, , and the American College of Radiology.
