Jeffrey D. DeCaprio, MD , FACS

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.

Dr. Todd Cumbie was born and raised on the Texas Gulf Coast where he completed high school before attending Baylor University in Waco, Texas. He received his Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, Summa Cum Laude from Baylor. He then returned to the Houston Area to attend Baylor College of Medicine where he obtained his medical degree. After medical school, Dr. Todd Cumbie completed his general surgery training at the University of Texas Southwestern and Parkland Memorial Hospital. He then did a two year peripheral vascular and endovascular surgery fellowship at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas. Dr. Todd Cumbie is board certified by the American Board of Surgery in General Surgery and Vascular Surgery. He also holds a certification for vascular ultrasound interpretation by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography.

Dr. Todd Cumbie was drawn to a career in vascular surgery during his time as a general surgery resident in Dallas.

Here he was able to train under several world renowned vascular surgeons on the most up-to-date minimally invasive endovascular techniques. During his training, he was active in research and has since collaborated on several research projects and publications in the fields of vascular trauma, carotid artery stenting, and minimally invasive endovascular aneurysm repair. He is the winner of several awards including the Raleigh Ross Scholar award presented to the top surgery resident by the Texas Surgical Society. He is also a member of the Society of Vascular Surgery. His professional interests include carotid artery disease, aortic aneurysms, and open and endovascular (minimally invasive) limb salvage procedures for peripheral arterial disease.

Despite the time demands as a vascular surgeon, Dr. Todd Cumbie is a devoted husband to his wife Caroline, and father to his four young children. He is also very active in his church community and has been on several medical mission trips to rural areas in Honduras to provide medical care and participate in public health initiatives. In his free time, Dr. Todd Cumbie loves to spend time doing outdoor activities such as water skiing or hunting.
