Vascular Interventional Radiologist Joins WMH
Vascular Interventional Radiologist Anthony Semāān, MD, has joined the medical specialists at Wyandot Memorial Hospital and is available for office hours every other Thursday starting August 12. He also performs surgeries and procedures at WMH.
Dr. Semāān is a practicing vascular interventional radiologist and fellowship trained in vascular interventional procedures. He specializes in minimally-invasive surgical and diagnostic procedures for the treatment of venous and arterial disease. He provides care for chronic leg and feet pain and swelling, venous stasis and ulcers, varicose veins, spider veins, peripheral arterial disease and fistula for hemodialysis; and offers patients a comprehensive evaluation to strategize treatment.
Dr. Semāān indicated he not only treats veins that can be seen, but also their root cause including venous insufficiency due to the malfunctioning of vein valves in leg veins.
“Chronic venous disease in the extremities can cause significant pain for many,” he noted. “Usually these conditions can be treated with minimally-invasive procedures that allow patients to regain their quality of life.”
The specialist emphasized the importance of the vascular system for the whole body.
“Much like plants, our tissues need adequate irrigation and drainage,” he said.
Dr. Semāān completed a vascular interventional fellowship at the Ohio State University in Columbus, radiology residency at the University of Toledo Medical Center and internal medicine residency at the Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland.
Dr. Semāān spearheads the Napoleon Vein Center at Henry County Hospital and is affiliated with the Findlay Laser & Vein Center.
