Born in England and raised in upstate New York, Dr. Haider (pronounced “Heather”) traveled the East Coast in pursuit of higher education. After graduating from Ithaca High School in Ithaca NY, Dr. Haider went on to attain a bachelors degree in neuroscience at the University of Rochester. He then completed medical school in Long Island at SUNY Stony Brook. After medical school he pursued a 5-year general surgery residency at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, NY. He then embarked on a 2-year super specialization in vascular and endovascular surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Hospital system in Pennsylvania. There he gained extensive training in both open and complex vascular surgery, as well as minimally invasive endovascular outpatient procedures that are performed through a barely noticeable 2-3 mm puncture in the blood vessel. Now, in practice for over 7 years, he enjoys practicing all aspects of vascular care including but not limited to varicose veins, treatment of leg ulcers and wounds, treatment of leg pain, placement of dialysis access, treatment of DVT (blood clots) and aneurysmal disease.
Dr. Haider’s undeniable passion is in providing minimally invasive procedures that make your legs look and feel better. He has performed thousands of these types of procedures. Each year he spends several days traveling to different parts of the country to learn the latest and greatest, state-of-the-art techniques to eliminate leg pain, cure wounds, and cosmetically enhance an individual’s legs. He is also a member of many prestigious societies that constantly relay the newest methods of treatment by publishing monthly articles. He believes in a team approach and works very closely with podiatrists (foot doctors) in the community to improve the blood flow in the leg and allow wounds to heal much quicker.
Dr. Haider’s philosophy is that no patient is too old when it comes to improving the health of his or her legs. Procedures performed by Dr. Haider are usually done under local anesthesia or with very mild sedation allowing quick recovery (within 24 hours) and no anesthetic risk. Most of the patients can drive themselves to and from the vein clinic and oftentimes return to work the next day. Dr. Haider’s exemplary credentials are second only to his impeccable bedside manner and passion for superb patient care. His patients often commend him on the time he takes to make a patient feel comfortable with their diagnosis and offer top-notch care to cure them of their vascular disease.
