Vascular surgeon joins team at Vassar Brothers Medical Center

Posted: 9/25/2019

Dr. Mohamed Elsagga recently joined the Health Quest Medical Practice Division of Vascular Surgery, now part of Nuvance Health. He treats patients at 21 Reade Place, Suite 200, and has privileges at Vassar Brothers Medical Center.

“I am eager to meet with patients from our community and offer comprehensive care, using advanced, noninvasive endovascular techniques to improve the health and wellness of those in our community,” Elsagga said.

Elsagga comes to the Hudson Valley from Panama City, Fla. His professional interests include peripheral arterial disease, a circulatory condition that reduces blood flow to the limbs; arterial aneurysms, caused by a ballooning and weakened area in an artery; and hemodialysis access, a method of reaching blood vessels.

Most recently, he served as a general surgeon at W.W. Hastings Hospital in Talequah, Okla. In this role, he provided surgical care to Native Americans of the Cherokee tribe, such as endoscopy, an examination of the digestive tract; laparoscopic hernia repair; and colon surgery.

Elsagga earned his medical degree from the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences in Missouri.

He was a vascular surgery fellow at Deborah Heart and Lung Center in Brown Mills, NJ. His general surgery residency and internship was completed at Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine in Stratford, NJ.

Outside of work, Elsagga enjoys spear and fly fishing, wood working and automotive repair.
