Daniel Scott, M.D.
Philosophy of Care
The field of vascular surgery is unique in its complexity. There are so many ways to treat a particular condition, but not all are appropriate in every situation. Dr. Scott’s goal in providing care is to personalize each treatment by taking into account a patient’s wishes and goals of care and then uses best available evidence and practices to address each of them. He wholeheartedly believes that every treatment plan is a team effort and he is willing to work as hard as necessary to help guide a patient through their particular affliction.
Dr. Scott has a clinical interest in a wide range of complex arterial and venous pathology. In particular, he specializes in abdominal aortic aneurysm repairs (open and endovascular), stent-graft repair of thoracic aortic aneurysm, treatment of lower extremity ischemia and limb salvage, treatment of varicose veins, carotid artery repair (open and endovascular), thoracic outlet syndromes, popliteal entrapment syndromes, dialysis access and orthopedic/neurosurgical access procedures. He has a special interest in providing tertiary referral for evaluation and treatment of failing endovascular or open repairs of abdominal aortic aneurysms.
Dr. Scott has been involved in furthering vascular surgery research at Travis Air Force Base. His current interest is developing pharmacologic adjuncts to reduce ischemia reperfusion syndromes in patients requiring resuscitative balloon occlusion of the aorta. This translational research seeks to improve lifesaving procedures for patients with traumatic vascular injuries in both civilian and military settings.
