Rapha Vascular is a resource for patients in need of information regarding all types of vascular conditions. Our highly trained and qualified staff is dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of vascular disease. We consider all options for the most up-to-date treatment types available, including surgical, nonsurgical, or minimally invasive endovascular options.
Vascular disease includes aneurysms, peripheral artery disease, stroke, renal failure, and venous disease. While they all affect the body in different ways, they are all linked by a common set of risk factors, including obesity, physical inactivity, smoking, and high blood pressure.
Unfortunately, Tampa Bay has an extremely high rate of these risk factors among the population. Our staff strives to not only treat patients with existing condition, but also educate them on preventive health with an overall goal of helping reduce the high mortality rates from vascular disease in our region.
Rapha Vascular is headed by Dr. Obinna Nwobi, who chose to practice in an underserved area in Florida. In a field that graduates only 100 new vascular surgeons a year, Dr. Nwobi is an exemplary vascular surgeon who worked for the Indian Health Services, Veterans Affairs Hospital, and large private and public hospitals.
