McLaren Central Michigan welcomes Interventional Radiologist Rami Safadi, MD to the medical staff. Dr. Safadi, a Midland resident for the past 16 years, will care for patients in the Heart & Vascular Center, providing minimally invasive treatment options for cardiovascular diseases.
“I chose to come to McLaren Central Michigan because it’s a unique place that has both qualified staff and state-of-the-art equipment, which is hard to find in towns the size of Mt. Pleasant,” Dr. Safadi said. “I have the best of both worlds here—the best technological advances in a friendly, small-town setting. In addition, the unique procedures I provide give me the satisfaction of seeing the impact of my services on the community.”
Dr. Safadi is board certified in diagnostic and vascular/interventional radiology, and has been practicing for nearly 20 years. His specialties include:
• endovascular treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms;
• radiofrequency ablation for cancer;
• stent placement;
• venous disease treatment;
• and vertebroplasty.
“I do my best to help patients understand their treatment plan and all alternative options available to them,” Dr. Safadi said. “My primary goal is the safety of my patients and providing the best outcome using the least invasive methods possible.”
Dr. Safadi attended medical school at the University of Jordan School of Medicine in Amman, Jordan, and completed a fellowship in cardiovascular and interventional radiology at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in Cleveland, OH.
He participates in local cancer research, takes part in global health initiatives, such as education and training in third-world countries, and is involved with the Doctors Without Borders organization, which works in nearly 70 countries providing medical aid to those most in need.
Dr. Safadi’s wife, Salma, is a professor at Central Michigan University. They have three children: Jad, age 12; Yasmine, age 9; and Danny, age 7.
In his spare time, Dr. Safadi says he is usually either coaching soccer or watching one of his children play a team sport. He also enjoys skiing, water sports, reading history books, and watching documentaries.
Dr. Safadi’s office is located in the Heart & Vascular Center at McLaren Central Michigan, 1221 South Drive in Mt. Pleasant. Appointments can be scheduled by calling (989) 953-5325.
