CCMH welcomes Dr. James F. Foster III from Kansas City Vascular and General Surgery Group, LLC, to our roster of outpatient specialty providers. He is affiliated with several area HCA Midwest Health hospitals. He will see patients in Carrollton on the third Monday of the month.
“This is a major milestone for the expansion of services offered at CCMH,” Tim Braun, CCMH Chief Operating Officer, said. “We have been trying to recruit a vascular surgeon for several years. Dr. Foster is an excellent addition to our already robust listing of specialty physicians and he will complement many of the services we already offer. Not only will he provide consultations for patients requiring a vascular specialist, we hope to be able to perform some minor procedures in our operating room.”

He has nine years of experience with specialized expertise and training in vascular malformations, varicose veins, diabetes complications, aneurysm and deep vein thrombosis. He is a registered physician in vascular interpretation (RPVI) and certified in the most advanced option for endovascular treatment of thoracic aneurysms as well as (TCAR) TransCarotid Artery Revascularization, a surgical treatment for carotid artery disease.
