With over 30 years’ experience as a board-certified surgeon, Dr. Barry J. Zadeh is considered by many of his peers to be a world leader in the vein and vascular field.
Dr. Zadeh brings years of accomplishments as a vein and vascular surgeon, mastering the newest minimally-invasive endovascular procedures. Dr. Zadeh has performed more than 3,000 open heart surgeries and thousands of thoracic and endovascular surgeries.
Endovascular surgery is a relatively new, less-invasive procedure for treating the two major problems that can develop in blood vessels: aneurysm and narrowing (also called an occlusion or stenosis).
Endovascular surgery treats the problem by using an easily accessible smaller blood vessel 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,” says Dr. Zadeh.
There are also a number of vein and artery solutions, such as the VNUS Closure, and Dr. Zadeh is one of the most experienced doctors in the country performing this procedure. This minimally-invasive procedure seals shut a damaged vein and, once the vein is closed, re-routes blood is to other healthy veins. It has become a useful alternative method for the treatment of varicose veins.
Dr. Zadeh relocated to Norwalk from Lancaster, Pa., where he served as Chief of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery at Lancaster Regional Medical Center 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.
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.
