Dr. Al-Zoubaidi performed the first TransCarotid Artery Revascularization or TCAR procedure in the state of Illinois in May of 2017, a technique that minimizes the risk of stroke during carotid procedures by temporarily reversing blood flow and placing a stent for long-term plaque stabilization and stroke prevention.

“I want to provide excellent and passionate patient centered care, lead by a good example. I also strive to establish an inclusive team environment that will foster a robust vascular services program to serve the community’s vascular needs.”
