“As a dedicated vascular surgeon, my philosophy of care is for preservation of life and limb while battling aggressive effects of atherosclerosis throughout the vascular system,” said Dr. Haqqani. “I constantly strive to improve the functional outcomes of my patients through continued development of open and endovascular techniques with an emphasis on limb sparing surgical techniques. Current state-of-the-art vascular surgery is centered around treatment of the entire patient and it is with constant collaboration among affiliated experts that we can achieve the best possible results for our patients and their families.”
Dr. Haqqani’s clinical, professional and academic interests focus on the natural history of peripheral arterial and venous diseases, as well as vascular disease treatment outcomes, education, economics and epidemiology. His research interests focus on aortic and carotid disease, novel therapeutics for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms and quality improvement measures. He has been published in numerous peer-reviewed journals and textbooks and is the 2011 Deterling Award Winner in Vascular Surgery, as well as the recipient of the 2011 Society of Vascular Surgery (SVS) National Research Award in Vascular Surgery. Dr. Haqqani currently serves as an Executive Council Member for the Accreditation Council for Surgical Quality.
As a vascular surgeon, he offers specialty medical services in operative and nonoperative treatment of arterial, venous and lymphatic diseases.
