Dr DeCaprio treats patients with diseases of the arteries, such as aortic aneurysms, blockages of the carotids, and pain in the lower limbs due to blockages in the arteries of the legs. He offers minimally invasive treatment of the above diseases, including aortic endografts, carotid stents, and Silverhawk™ atherectomies. He also offers comprehensive solutions for varicose veins and spider veins, using techniques such as venous laser therapy, miniphlebectomy, and sclerotherapy, that leave barely noticeable scars, if any at all.
After obtaining his medical degree from New York University, where he was elected President of Alpha Omega Alpha, the prestigious national honor society reserved for the top graduates in a medical school class, Dr. Jeffrey DeCaprio trained at Parkland Hospital in Dallas. In order to focus exclusively on vascular surgery, he returned to New York University for additional fellowship training. He is board certified in both general surgery and vascular surgery.
After his fellowship, Dr. DeCaprio served as a vascular surgeon and as a major in the United States Air Force, at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. Shortly after September 11, 2001, Dr. DeCaprio was deployed overseas and served his country during Operation Enduring Freedom. During his time in Adana, Turkey, Dr. DeCaprio provided surgical care to our country’s brave soldiers who were wounded in Afghanistan.
Upon his honorable discharge from the Air Force, Dr. DeCaprio moved to Texarkana, Texas.
