Members of The Surgical Group of Southwest Michigan have been providing uninterrupted surgical care to the community of Kalamazoo and southwestern Michigan since 1981.  The members of the group were instrumental in the development of endovascular surgery in Kalamazoo, working to establish the first dedicated endovascular operating suites in Michigan.  This group was the first to promote minimally invasive therapies for peripheral venous disease.  The Surgical Group of Southwest Michigan pioneered office-based VNUS procedures thus, providing significant cost savings.  The largest ICAVL certified peripheral vascular laboratory in southwestern Michigan is based with The Surgical Group of Southwest Michigan.  Registered vascular technologists with combined experience of over 75 years perform all studies.

Our practice offers a wide range of general and vascular surgical services. In the field of vascular surgery, these services include the treatment of carotid artery disease, abdominal aortic aneurysm and lower extremity stenosis.

We also offer general surgical services such as the laparoscopic removal of the gallbladder, hernia repair, treatment of thoracic outlet syndrome and carpal tunnel syndrome, colon surgery and two procedures for the treatment of varicose veins: injection therapy (sclerotherapy) and VNUS closure procedure for varicose veins.
