Dr. Diego Hernandez
Diego Hernandez, M.D., is a board-certified Vascular Surgeon with nearly 20 years of experience in the treatment of vascular conditions. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan, his medical degree from Indiana University School of Medicine and completed his residency in General Surgery at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan.
To ensure his patients received the best care for their condition, Dr. Hernandez pursued a fellowship in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery at Wayne State University/William Beaumont Hospital. He has been practicing in the Bloomfield Hills area since 2010.
His interests are in the minimally invasive treatment of all aspects of vein disease as well as other vascular conditions. He has published in peer review journals and is a member of the most prestigious vascular societies.
His practice philosophy is simple, but it is the driver of how he interacts with his patients:
“My pledge is to provide each and every single one of my patients with the best possible care that I can offer. I do not take lightly the trust that my patients have placed on me, and it is this trust that forms the cornerstone of the foundation that allows me to offer the most contemporary and comprehensive care available.”
What It Means To Be Board Certified?
Board certification is the highest degree that a physician can obtain. After graduating from five years of general surgery residency and a two-year fellowship in vascular surgery, a physician must pass a written exam that tests her/his knowledge in all aspects of vascular conditions, including vein problems. After passing the written exam, a physician takes an oral exam administered by a number of her/his peers.
Passing both of these exams is necessary in order to become board-certified. Obtaining this designation denotes the highest possible level of expertise in the physician’s respective field. Being board certified in vascular surgery means a physician has been trained to deal with all aspects of vein and vascular problems.
Achieving board-certification in other specialties, such as radiology or cardiology, do not guarantee the same level of training that is required to appropriately treat vascular conditions.
