Doctor Krcelic is trained in all aspects of vascular surgery in both the inpatient and outpatient setting.

The heart is a muscular organ about the size of a fist, located at the center of our chest that pumps blood through the network of arteries and veins. It pumps around 6 liters of blood per minute. The heart’s vital performance can be affected by a number of factors, causing it to beat too slow, too fast, or even cause it to fail. Aside from physical ailments, emotions such as joy, sadness, and grief can positively or negatively affect the heart’s performance and health.
Figuratively, the deepest and most noble thoughts and feelings, as well as the darker ones, have been attributed to originating from the heart. Matters of the heart are the most important things in our lives and move us deeply. They bring us joy and laughter, along with sadness and tears. They are things that touch our hearts, fill our hearts, and break our hearts. They are what makes us fully human. Matters of the heart connect us to each other and to God.
This exhibition showcases new and original works of art by Dr. Julio Rodriguez-Lopez (renowned vascular surgeon) in acrylic paint with some new watercolor features. These pieces in essence merge the clinical with the metaphorical presentations of the heart and reveal the connection between both.

Vascular Surgeons diagnose, treat, and manage the full spectrum of vascular diseases.
“If you only have a hammer you tend to see every problem as a nail.”
Some vascular “specialists” perform one or two kinds of vascular interventions, so their patients tend to get those treatments. Vascular Surgeons are trained in all treatment modalities and are able to perform every type of procedure skillfully: open, complicated surgery and minimally invasive, in-office endovascular procedures. Some patients need one, some need the other, while many need no surgery at all. Vascular Surgeons are “treatment agnostic,” that is, they do not prefer any treatment over another.
Some types of surgeons come into your life to perform a procedure, make sure you heal and then leave; that’s their role. A vascular surgeon is someone who treats you on an ongoing basis for decades. A vascular surgeon very often has long-term relationships with patients because vascular disease can be a long-term condition.
At Western Vascular Institute, patients will get the best treatment for their particular needs in a caring and safe environment by a vascular surgeon with a full toolbox of treatment options!
