Radio-frequency probes sound like something used to discover new stars, but they’re actually one of the many technologies used by Dr. Frank Fazzio to improve his patients’ lives. Dr. Fazzio has been practicing medicine since 1978, and his surgical attention has been focused solely on vein disorders since 2004. The medical veteran wields some of the most modern tools available to his specialty, including endoscopic cameras, advanced lasers, and the da Vinci Surgical System, which uses robotic technology to perform complicated operations. It’s not just the technology that makes Dr. Fazzio an authority in his field, though—he has performed an astounding 15,000 surgical procedures during his career, only 6 shy of Babe Ruth’s record.
Like millions of corn stalks, Dr. Fazzio has roots in Illinois and found his way in the dining halls of a Wisconsin college—Marquette University. After studying medicine at the Washington University School of Medicine, Dr. Fazzio completed a residency in general and peripheral vascular surgery at the University of Utah. But he’s now firmly planted in Idaho, and during his career he has even been the president of the medical staff at Treasure Valley Hospital.
