About Barry Zadeh, MD...

 

Peripheral Artery DiseaseDr. Barry J. Zadeh, a board certified cardiovascular and thoracic surgeon, joined the medical staff of Fisher-Titus Medical Center August of 2006. He relocated to Norwalk from Lancaster, Pa., where he served as Chief of Cardiovascular and Thoracic surgery at Lancaster Regional Medical Center for the past six years and was a member of the medical staff there since 1993. Dr. Zadeh is certified by the American board of Thoracic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery.

Dr. Zadeh brings years of accomplishments as a cardiovascular surgeon as well as the newest minimally invasive endovascular procedures. He is the only physician in the area trained to perform these minimally invasive endovascular procedures enabling us to provide the latest medical techniques for patients with heart and vascular diseases.Dr. Zadeh has performed more than 3,000 open heart surgeries and thousands of thoracic and vascular surgeries.

Zadeh explained that cardiovascular surgeons treat patients with diseases of the heart, lungs, esophogus, diaphragm and great vessels as well as lung and esophageal cancers. Vascular surgery involves either an artery or a vein. When the surgery is done from within the blood vessel, it is called endovascular surgery.

"Endovascular surgery is a relatively new, less-invasive procedure for treating the two major problems that can develop in blood vessels: an aneurysm and a narrowing (also called an occlusion or stenosis)," Zadeh said.

Endovascular surgery treats the problem by using an easily accessible smaller artery to advance a long plastic tube called a catheter to the aneurysm or narrowing. The surgeon is guided by X-ray imaging. Endovascular procedures do not require general anesthesia.

"This type of surgery is much easier on the patient," Zadeh said.

In addition to his post as chief of cardiovascular and thoracic surgery at Lancaster Regional Medical Center in Lancaster, Zadeh also was chief of cardiovascular and thoracic surgery at Brandywine Hospital in Coatesville, Pa. from 1993-2005 and at St. Joseph Hospital in Lancaster from 1993 -1998.  He completed a fellowship in cardiovascular surgery at The New York Hospital-Cornell University Medical Center and The Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. He is a Fellow of both the American College of Cardiology and the American College of Surgeons and a member of the Society of Thoracic Surgery.

Zadeh earned his doctor of medicine degree from Albany Medical College, Albany, N.Y. in 1980.
