Online Features

Dr. Woo's work with minimally invasive peripheral vascular disease surgery to treat leg pain was featured in the Summer 2015 edition of Center Scope.

"If you have any concerns, it is important to talk to your doctor or make an appointment to see a vascular specialist," Woo said. "Without treatment, severe PVD can lead to worsening conditions, including dead tissue, gangrene, and even possible amputation of a limb."

He also teamed up with Dr. Misaki Kiguchi to discuss the latest advances in treatments of vascular disease and how minimally invasive technologies can provide better patient outcomes.
