Board-Certified Vascular Surgeon
Vein Health Clinics is headed by Dr. Obinna Nwobi, a board certified vascular surgeon, who chose to practice in an underserved area in Florida. In a field that graduates only 100 new vascular surgeons a year, Dr. Nwobi is an exemplary vascular surgeon who worked for the Indian Health Services, Veterans Affairs Hospital, and large private and public hospitals.
Dr. Nwobi graduated with highest honors from East Tennessee State University with a dual degree in English and chemistry. He then received his medical degree on a scholarship from the University of Tennessee College of Medicine in Memphis.
After medical school, Dr. Nwobi completed his internship and residency in general surgery at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in Newark, followed by a fellowship in vascular surgery at the Albany Medical Center/The Vascular Group PLLC in Albany, NY, one of the largest single-specialty, peripheral vascular centers in the country.
Dr. Nwobi also completed a master’s degree in public health (MPH) from the prestigious Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health with an emphasis on health care management and international health. In addition, he is a Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation (RPVI), which means he is certified to read and interpret all vascular ultrasounds performed in his clinics.
As a member of the Society for Vascular Surgery, Dr. Nwobi is dedicated to the highest standards of patient care and continuing development of professional skills and competence.
Fueled by his love for God and a thirst to give back, Dr. Nwobi has planned and completed four medical missions to Nigeria: as an international elective in February 2002, a pediatric cardiac mission in July 2003 and August 2005, and a 36-doctor-strong mission in 2006, saving countless lives with surgery for people in Africa who cannot afford it.
People who have never dealt with vein issues tend to assume that varicose and vascular veins are
only a problem for the elderly, and that the problem is merely cosmetic. However, this couldn’t be
further from the truth.
