David Catalane, MD

Vascular Access Center of Pittsburgh

Catalane-Head-ShotDavid Catalane, MD, is a board certified General/Vascular Surgeon with over 25 years experience treating vascular disease. A graduate of the University of Pittsburgh School Of Medicine with honors in surgery, he did his surgical training in Pittsburgh at Mercy Hospital. Dr. Catalane is on staff at St Clair, OVGH and Mercy to care for inpatient hospital needs but is now able to offer outpatient vascular evaluation and treatment at the Vascular Access Center of Pittsburgh in the new Cranberry location.

Dr. Catalane has successfully endeavored to keep abreast of all the latest advances in surgical care, including minimally invasive endovascular techniques. These procedures make possible the management of complex vascular problems, many requiring only a needle stick or single, small incision. Problems treated include: peripheral vascular disease, non-healing wounds, threat of limb loss, dialysis access placement, aortic aneurysm, venous disease and others.
