Dr. Victor J. D’Addio was a general surgeon for 5 years before he decided to take 2 extra years of training to become a vascular surgeon.
That specialized training and high level of experience is one of the real benefits that VIVA offers its patients.
“We have very experienced doctors, and we can treat the gamut of vascular conditions,” Dr. D’Addio said. “We don’t have a lot of interns around here. When you come to us for treatment, you’re getting the best-trained doctor.”
Dr. D’Addio said there’s no need for people to leave town to try to find alternatives to VIVA.
“It’s close, it’s convenient, it’s safe to see us.”
Dr. D’Addio grew up in Newburg, NY, and went to medical school at Tulane University. He did his surgical residency at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, and then did his vascular training at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.
He moved to the Fredericksburg area to be close to family.
“I was the first vascular guy in town,” Dr. D’Addio said.
For fun, he plays golf, exercises and spends time with his college- and high school-age kids.
