“We are always learning new techniques that can help patients.”
Dr. Sebastiano Didato says he always had an inclination to fix things. “I come from a family of auto mechanics, so growing up fixing things came naturally to me. However, I also had a great love of science. So for me, going into medicine made sense because it allowed me to combine the things I loved and help make people better.”
Dr. Didato believes that successful outcomes in vascular surgery are very much a collaborative effort between surgeon and patient. “For instance if patients take care of their health, such as giving up smoking and getting their diabetes under control, they will have a greater chance of success. It’s very much a collaborative effort.”
In order to help patients Dr. Didato performs many different procedures including, abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, thoracic aortic aneurysm repair, lower extremity bypass, extremity angioplasty, stenting, and various treatments for varicose veins and more. “I like the fine work of vascular surgery, and also the variety. It’s one of the few specialties where you can utilize minimally invasive techniques and also treat people with open surgery too. Vascular surgeons get to utilize a varied set of skills to help treat a problem.”
In his practice at Reliant Dr. Didato enjoys being able to take advantage of the latest techniques to treat patients. “Technology just changes constantly in vascular surgery. We are always learning new techniques that can help patients. That’s one of the things that makes vascular surgery so interesting.”
Dr. Didato says he likes to encourage patients to get involved in their own care. “I like to give patients guidance but I also like to have a conversation with them on their options and what they should consider because there is usually more than one way to handle a situation. I find that when the patient is involved in the decision-making the outcomes tend to be better.”
In his spare time Dr. Didato enjoys being with his wife and two children. They enjoy flying (he is a licensed pilot) and raising horses. He and his family also enjoy the outdoors and going camping.
