Rizwan H. Bukhari, M.D., F.A.C.S., is the owner of North Texas Vascular Center, where he offers diagnostic services and minimally invasive out-patient procedures largely related to amputation prevention and limb salvage. He is a strong advocate of incorporating plant-based nutrition into his patient lifestyle modification programs.
As a board certified vascular surgeon, Dr. Bukhari treats a variety of vascular issues including aneurysms, carotid artery stenosis, lower extremity arterial blockages, gangrene, dialysis access grafts, and varicose veins. He has a specific interest in minimally invasive procedures such as atherectomy, angioplasty, and stenting for limb salvage and amputation prevention. In his 20+ years of practice, Dr. Bukhari has treated severe advanced atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. He has seen the ravaging effects of poor lifestyle choices on our health. Cardiovascular disease, and its risk factors, such as obesity, tobacco use, hypertension, and diabetes are largely acquired diseases secondary to the foods we eat and our lifestyle choices.
