Dr. Julie White, Vascular Surgeon, Joins Pen Bay

By Pen Bay Healthcare | Dec 02, 2010

Pen Bay Healthcare is pleased to announce that Dr. Julie White is joining Pen Bay Surgery. The only vascular surgeon in Midcoast Maine, she begins seeing patients in January.

Vascular surgery is a specialty of surgery in which diseases of the vascular system, or arteries and veins, are managed by medical therapy, minimally-invasive catheter procedures, and surgical reconstruction. The specialty evolved from general and cardiac surgery. Among other conditions, vascular surgery addresses Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) ; Carotid Artery Disease; Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) and spider and varicose veins.

A native of Framingham, Mass., White is a graduate of Colgate University and the Boston University School of Medicine. She completed her residency in general surgery at Boston University Medical Center and a fellowship in vascular surgery at Boston Medical Center. She comes to Pen Bay from Brockton Hospital in Brockton, Mass. She has been an assistant clinical professor in surgery at both Boston University School of Medicine and Tufts University Medical School.

Certified by the American Board of Surgery in both general surgery and vascular surgery, White is a member of the American College of Surgeons, the Society of Clinical Vascular Surgery and the American Society of Breast Surgeons.

White says she chose Pen Bay Healthcare because of its quality staff and quality patient- and family-centered care.

"We have sailed the coast almost every summer for the last 20 years. We love the coast and we love the people there," she said. She and her husband have a college-age daughter.

Pen Bay Surgery is located in the Pen Bay Physicians Building on the campus of Penobscot Bay Medical Center in Rockport. For information call 593-5737. Online: pbmc.org/surgery.
