Patient Education

Dr Santin likes to help educate patients and their families about the particular vascular condition affecting them.  He believes that more well-informed patients tend to have better outcomes as they become active participants in their care.  In an effort to help promote this philosophy, in conjunction with the Society for Vascular, below is a list of vascular conditions with links to helpful information that is easy to understand.  Simply click on the name.  If you have further questions or would like to know more, Ask Dr Santin on our homepage (lower right corner).
