Licensed to practice medicine in New York and Florida, Dr. Feldbaum is a board-certified vascular surgeon who tends to patients at the Vein & Vascular Center of South Florida in Pembroke Pines, Florida.
The Vein & Vascular Center of South Florida is a comprehensive provider of vascular and endovascular care serving residents of South Florida. The team of board-certified vascular surgeons working there specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of aneurysms of the aorta and other arteries, peripheral vascular disease, carotid stenosis and cerebrovascular disease, renal vascular disease, dialysis access, as well as disorders of the veins, including venous insufficiency, varicose veins, spider veins, and deep vein thrombosis.
The mission of the Vein & Vascular Center of South Florida is “to provide vascular care and service of the highest quality through a personal doctor/patient approach that incorporates both traditional and contemporary treatments with a vision to be a community leader in the field of vascular surgery.”
Currently affiliated with Westside Regional Medical Center, Dr. Feldbaum formerly served as a member of the voluntary faculty i.e. Clinical Instructor of Surgery at the University of Miami School of Medicine. He also served as Chief of Vascular Services with the Memorial Healthcare System.
In regards to his educational background, Dr. Feldbaum completed his undergraduate degree from Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts. He then earned his medical degree from SUNY Upstate in Syracuse in 1993. He completed a residency in general surgery at Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City, followed by a fellowship in vascular surgery at the Carolinas Heart Institute in North Carolina.
Before long, he became board-certified in vascular surgery by the American Board of Surgery, an independent, non-profit organization located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, founded for the purpose of certifying surgeons who have met a defined standard of education, training, and knowledge. He also attained fellowship status with the American College of Surgeons (FACS) and membership status with the Florida Vascular Society and the South Florida Vascular Society.
Vascular surgery is a surgical subspecialty in which diseases of the vascular system, including the arteries, veins, and lymphatic circulation, are managed by medical therapy, minimally-invasive catheter procedures, and surgical reconstruction. A vascular surgeon diagnoses, treats, and manages conditions in the arteries and veins, also called the blood vessels. These specialists treat a range of health problems, from spider and varicose veins to life-threatening aneurysms, and can help patients manage chronic conditions throughout their lives.
Throughout his extensive career as a clinician, Dr. Feldbaum was appointed Councilor of the South Florida Chapter of the American College of Surgeons (January 2006-2009). He was also named the recipient of the C. Gillon Ward Resident Education Award by the Dewitt Daughtry Family Department of Surgery (2005), the Leo Davidorf Award for the Surgical Teaching of Medical Students at Montefiore Medical Center / Albert Einstein College of Medicine (1998), the Association of Academic Surgeons Research Award (1993), and the American Federation for Clinical Research Medical Student Award (1992), among others. Since 2002, he has been serving as a Vascular Surgery Reviewer for the Florida Medicare Quality Assurance Organization.
