  • This week continues our #PAWeek festivities and we want to celebrate our very own Physician Assistant at Vascular Interventional Associates, Blanka Heary!

    She is a graduate of the Physician Assistant Program at Daemen College and has been in the profession for 15 years – 8 of those years with VIA! (Aren’t we so lucky?!) She takes pride in being a PA and being a part of a profession that has had such an impact in healthcare. Her favorite part of the profession is simply working with patients and making a difference in their lives for the better. When it comes to working at VIA, Blanka just loves saving limbs, literally! She’s grateful that she has such a rewarding job and has the opportunity to work alongside people that share the same passion for what they do.

    Blanka grew with VIA. As we were growing, she helped out by wearing various hats, as Dr. Iqbal put it. She would lend a helping hand wherever necessary, whether it was administration, billing and coding, or marketing. One of her biggest contributions to the practice however, would be the free VIA Symposium that showcases the medical advances in Western New York every year. This year will mark the 12th symposium and is set to take place in April 2018.

    Dr. Iqbal says that Blanka is his “clinical face” to the practice. He considers her a partner and together they have been able to thrive in reaching their goal of preventing amputations. She truly embodies what VIA is all about: compassion, care, intelligence, and making a difference.

    Blanka is the mother of three sons, where she excels in the “mommy taxi” industry. She admits that she doesn’t enjoy housework, but can find some relaxation in gardening and cooking with her kids. 

    Thanks for all you do, Blanka! #PAsDoThat

    Vascular interventional radiology (VIR) procedures are advances in medicine that often replace open surgical procedures. VIR endovascular experts specialize in minimally invasive, targeted treatments performed using imaging guidance techniques to "see" inside the body.

    These image guided techniques allow for treatment of a variety of medical disorders without surgery. Patients benefit from decreased risk, pain, and recovery time. Procedures that traditionally required a hospital visit can now be performed in the comfort of an outpatient clinic.

  • Buffalo Vascular Care Grand Opening

    Vascular Interventional Associates is proud to announce the opening of our outpatient clinic.

  • "Thanks to new therapies, wounds and ulcers don’t have to cost an arm or leg"

    Click Here to read our feature in The Buffalo News.

    "Traditionally, when someone comes to a physician with a non-healing ulcer or near gangrene, according to the latest numbers from the American Vascular Society, about half these patients will get an amputation without the benefit of an angiogram, a study of blood vessels to see where a problem might be. Amputation is done as a primary “treatment.” Over the last five years, a revolution has taken place with the miniaturization of devices and endovascular techniques. As a result, we are now able to open small arteries down to the foot. These procedures are done in the comfort of operation space and a patient goes home a couple hours afterwards."
