Doctor joins amputation prevention practice
A new doctor has joined a practice that focuses on amputation prevention.
Vascular surgeon Dr. L. Abraham Mata has joined the practice of Advanced Cardiac and Vascular Centers for Amputation Prevention.
Mata practices in ACV’s Grand Rapids and Lansing offices, offering comprehensive vascular care.
Mata performs endovascular interventions for patients with peripheral artery disease and critical limb ischemia at both locations. He also treats patients with venous disease. Procedures that require hospitalization are performed at McLaren Greater Lansing.
He moved to Michigan to join the practice after attending an ACV training seminar. Prior to joining ACV, he worked for a private practice in McAllen, Texas.
ACV was founded by uncle-nephew duo Dr. Jihad Mustapha and Dr. Fadi Saab, who specialize in treating PAD and the complications of CLI. The first office opened in Grand Rapids in February 2018, and a Lansing office has since been opened.
“Dr. Mata has fully embraced the ACV culture of focusing on patients first,” Mustapha said. “After he attended one of our training sessions, we immediately knew we had to have him on our team. His patient-centric approach coupled with a strong skill set made him the perfect candidate to help grow our multidisciplinary practice.”
Mata holds his medical degree from University of Texas and his bachelor’s degree from Texas Tech University.
Mata completed his fellowship at West Virginia University Charleston Area Medical Center and his residency at Texas Tech Health Science Center in Lubbock, Texas.
“I look forward to continuing to grow as a vascular surgeon and specialist,” Mata said. “I love being a part of this team and look forward to interacting with our patients in ways that go beyond their expectations. They deserve no less.”
