General Vascular Surgery
Dr. Wehmann is “triple boarded”– certified by the national specialty boards of general surgery, vascular surgery, and wound care. He has practiced these surgical areas for more than 20 years and joined CRMC in 2012.
As a general surgeon, he performs procedures such as gallbladder removal or hernia repair, often laparoscopically, with small incisions and special instruments.
As a vascular surgeon, he often uses minimally invasive procedures to remove plaque from carotid and other arteries or to treat vascular aneurysms, blood clots, deep vein thromboses, and varicose veins. He also surgically places ports for patients requiring chemotherapy, dialysis or other treatments involving vascular access.
Many of Dr. Wehmann’s wound care patients are referred by other physicians when their surgical incisions don’t heal or when ulcerations caused by trauma, diabetes, lupus or other diseases put them at risk of losing a limb. In fact, Dr. Wehmann has been named medical director of the wound center to be opened at CRMC in (month?)
Dr. Wehmann was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and began his healthcare career as a surgical physician’s assistant. (He says this, plus a short stint as a nursing student, help him work collegially with all members of the healthcare team.) He graduated from the Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1985. He did his general surgery residency at Cuyahoga Falls General Hospital in Ohio, where he was chief resident and received the national resident achievement award from the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons. He completed another residency in peripheral vascular surgery, at Southwest General Hospital and Lutheran Medical Center, also in Ohio.
He practiced as a general and peripheral vascular surgeon in Northeast Ohio Surgical Specialists, Inc. and was chairman of peripheral vascular surgery and director of wound care at Cuyahoga Falls General Surgery. He served on the clinical faculty at Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine. In 2008, he was recruited to Mayo Clinical Health System of Waycross (Georgia), where he served as president of the medical staff for two years.
Dr. Wehmann is a member of the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons, American Osteopathic Association, and American Board of Wound Management, among other organizations. A clinical assistant professor at Mercer University School of Medicine, he has written medical articles about carotid endartectomy and vascular access for dialysis.
Married, he has three grown sons and a step-son in high school in Douglas.
