Biography

Philosophy of care
“As a vascular surgeon, there is no one-size-fits-all operation. My approach is similar to that of an old cobbler who makes one shoe at a time. I see each patient, get to know them and develop a relationship. Then, I can tailor a specific operative or non-operative management plan based on their specific needs and goals.”

Why Dr. Hwang went into medicine
“From the very beginning, I was attracted to surgery due to my innate desire to not only fix problems, but to do so tangibly with my own hands. The devil is truly in the details, and a good vascular surgeon will have the big picture of what they are trying to accomplish with a patient while being cognizant of their overall clinical picture.”

Favorite advice to give patients
“Do not ever hesitate to call. I would rather see you in the clinic or via telemedicine and tell you everything is alright, rather than seeing you too late in the emergency department. There are problems that will sometimes require urgent attention not tomorrow, but today.”

“There is always a team here to help every patient. They will never do this alone.”
