William C. Pevec specializes in complex vascular surgery, including aortic reconstructions, mesenteric and renal artery reconstruction, and reconstructions of the arteries of the distal leg and foot.
His practice includes both minimally invasive endovascular procedures and open reconstructions. His clinical research centers on reducing preoperative risks for and outcome assessment of patients undergoing vascular operations.
