The Pulse: Meet Dr. Sweda

Posted by on .

Greetings, MidMichigan Health! I’m Vascular Surgeon Brad Sweda, M.D., the newest member of MidMichigan’s heart and vascular team. I come to MidMichigan from the Flint area, where I’ve been in practice for the past 16 years, and I’m excited to serve a new community of patients and their needs.

It’s my vision to provide you with a regular column discussing various vascular topics that encompass the scope of vascular care. I’ll cover topics such as walking and exercise management, blood lipids and cholesterol, smoking cessation programs and lower extremity arterial disease, commonly referred to as PAD. I’ll discuss conditions such as aortic aneurysms, carotid artery disease as it pertains to stroke and stroke risks, how to manage blood clots and the use of blood thinners, and new interventions that may assist patients with┬ácomplex, high-risk problems. It is my hope that this column will provide a springboard for discussions, both with your immediate family but also with your primary care provider, as you navigate this ever-increasingly complex world of health care. My office and staff are here to be of service for any questions and concerns you may have about vascular care, and we’ll work diligently to arrange for timely appointments and evaluations.

See you for next month’s topic: peripheral vascular disease.
