Dr. Campbell completed his General Surgery Training at Brooklyn Hospital Center in Brooklyn, New York in 1992. He completed his Vascular Surgery training at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas in 1998. Dr. Campbell strongly believes that, in caring for the patient, the goal is to provide the best outcomes, and to use minimally invasive techniques and procedures whenever possible. He is board certified in Vascular Surgery and his interests include: Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms, Carotid Artery Disease, Peripheral Vascular Disease, Varicose Veins and Hemodialysis Access.
As a vascular surgeon, Dr. Campbell sees many patients with complaints of leg pain. Leg pain may be due to varicose veins or peripheral artery disease (PAD), or other non-vascular causes. Dr. Campbell is a specialist with expertise in treating both arterial and vein diseases of the lower extremities, as well as in evaluating for non-vascular causes. Dr. Campbell recommends minimally invasive treatments whenever possible, for PAD. Treatments including balloon angioplasty, laser atherectomy, orbital atherectomy, and stenting, can all be done in the office setting. For patients with severe arterial disease of the lower extremities, a surgical bypass (femoral-popliteal or femoral-tibial), may be the best treatment option to improve blood flow to the legs, and Dr. Campbell has performed several hundred of these procedures, with excellent results. Dr. Campbell also sees many patients with varicose veins, and most are treated with minimally invasive procedures, that have little down time and a fast recovery. South Valley Vascular recommends RFA vein ablation and injection sclerotherapy for treatment of symptomatic and cosmetic veins. Both of these procedures can be done in the office setting with little down time and fast recovery.
