Specialist in Vascular Surgery
Sachin Phade, MD, FACS, RPVI, is board certified in General and Vascular Surgery and has been practicing for almost a decade in Chattanooga, where he attended the McCallie School. After graduating from McCallie in 1994, Dr. Phade went to Davidson College in Davidson, NC, where he earned a BS in Biology with a concentration in Medical Humanities. Afterward, he went to West Virginia University School of Medicine from 1999-2003. Next, Dr. Phade trained in General Surgery at East Carolina University from 2003-2009. He then pursued a Fellowship in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery at the renowned Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago. There, he received the Department of Surgery Fellows Teaching Award two years in a row.
Dr. Phade has been practicing medicine for almost twelve years. He has contributed to several book chapters, published in several peer-reviewed journals, and presented at national and international meetings, where he also was a research fellow in the Division of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery. Dr. Phade decided to pursue vascular surgery because it combines medical management with minimally invasive interventions and complex open reconstructions. He believes that doctors and patients trust him because he takes the time to educate while providing cost-effective but aggressive care.
Dr. Phade enjoys spending his free time with his wife of 18 years, Radhika, and their two sweet and talented girls, Anisha and Amiya. His hobbies include reading about finance, construction, history, and politics. Dr. Phade’s interest lies in understanding the science, perspectives, and events that have gotten us to this point. Dr. Phade has found that Chattanoogans represent a unified community. Dr. Phade and his family will forever be indebted to the friends, coworkers, patients, and even strangers who have lifted their family during challenging times.
It seems cliché but I treat patients in the way I would want to be treated. First, I start with education. Once patients understand their disease processes and treatment options, they can start moving forward with the tools to control their own futures rather than unfounded concerns. Then, I try to balance patient autonomy with my guidance. Along the way, I try to learn the patients’ goals and constraints so that I can provide value-based care, as most people have time and resource limitations. Ultimately, I do what I can to understand each patients’ healthcare goals so I can help them achieve them
