About me

Danielle Salazar, MD, is vascular surgeon at MedStar Montgomery Medical Center.

In her practice, Dr. Salazar sees patients with complex vascular pathology spanning aortic, carotid artery, venous occlusive, deep venous, and peripheral arterial diseases. Her research interests include deep venous disease management with a focus on the use of minimally invasive mechanical thrombectomy devices for the treatment of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.

Dr. Salazar is also trained in vascular hemodialysis access and provides an array of options for percutaneous fistulae, AV fistulae, and bypass grafts, using some of the most innovative, minimally invasive options available.

Philosophy of Care

“There is a continuity of care in vascular surgery that allows me to build relationships with patients over time. I always aim to establish trust and make it easy for them to relax, talk, and feel heard. Sometimes patients come in for one reason and we uncover others. I believe that this–plus technical expertise and keen collaboration with colleagues–delivers optimal outcomes.”
