FLOWOOD, MS, August 31, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — Danón E. Garrido, MD, has been recognized as a 2023 Castle Connolly Top Doctor — the first time he has received the prestigious Top Doctor honor. Only about 7 percent of the nation’s licensed physicians are selected annually as Castle Connolly Top Doctors in their regions for their specialties.

Dr. Garrido is a vascular surgeon with Advanced Vascular and Vein Associates, a private practice outside of Jackson, Miss. He treats all types of vein and artery conditions — from deep vein thrombosis and peripheral artery disease to chronic venous insufficiency and diabetic vascular disease, including diabetic wounds.

Using advanced techniques such as endovascular surgery, Dr. Garrido specializes in performing minimally invasive, primarily outpatient procedures. These include carotid endarterectomy; angioplasty and stenting; and limb-sparing procedures aimed at preventing amputation.

Dr. Garrido is an Alliance for Physician Certification & Advancement-certified Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation®.

He is affiliated with Mississippi Baptist Medical Center’s Jackson Hospital, Merit Health River Oaks, and St. Dominic Hospital in Jackson.

Advanced Vascular and Vein Associates treats patients with:
– Aortic aneurysm
– Mesenteric artery ischemia
– Blood clots
– Peripheral artery disease (PAD)
– Carotid artery disease
– Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES)
– Chronic venous insufficiency
– Renal artery stenosis
– Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
– Thoracic outlet syndrome
– Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD)
– Varicose veins
– May-Thurner syndrome
– Visceral and peripheral arterial aneurysms

The practice also sees patients with comorbidities linked to a high risk of complex vascular and vein disease including those with diabetes, hypertension, and other conditions as a specialist to aid in preventive care, and conducts regular peripheral artery disease, carotid artery disease, and abdominal aortic aneurysm screenings for early detection. Common procedures performed include carotid endarterectomy, angioplasty and stenting, amputation prevention, dialysis access creation and maintenance, endovascular stenting, laser therapy, endovascular and surgical treatment of arterial occlusions, and median arcuate limb syndrome.

Advanced Vascular and Vein Associates strives for excellence with each patient interaction from before they see a physician for their appointment to their continuum of care post-appointment. The practice utilizes a variety of online platforms to initiate and maintain opportunities for two-way patient communication and offers online appointment requests for convenience. It is also the first and only outpatient-based vascular lab in Mississippi, the benefits of which include lower costs, reduced wait times, and expedited test results. At most patient appointments, Dr. Garrido:
– Measures each patient’s weight and blood pressure.
– Reviews medical history, including medications, allergies, medical diagnoses, surgical history, and family history; this includes a confirmation/review of information entered at check-in.
– Performs ultrasound tests appropriate for the condition being treated and then, an appropriate vascular screening in a subsequent visit when appropriate.
– Discusses vascular health goals.

Dr. Garrido earned his medical degree at Universidad Nacional Pedro Henríquez Urena School of Medicine in the Dominican Republic. He completed a five-year general surgery residency at HCA Florida JFK North Hospital and a two-year vascular surgery fellowship at University of Maryland Medical Center.

Top Doctors are nominated by peer physicians and selected by the physician-led Castle Connolly research team.

“It’s an incredible honor to be recognized as a ‘Top Doctor’ among peers who share the same extraordinary passion for providing high-quality patient care. I am humbled and grateful for receiving this distinction from such an esteemed organization,” Dr. Garrido says. “For patients today, the challenges of navigating the healthcare system and deciphering the abundance of misinformation are vast and overwhelming. Castle Connolly provides the supportive, unbiased, credible, and essential resources patients need to advocate for themselves and make the right decisions when it comes to their care.”
