Dr. L. Abraham Mata Joins ACV Centers
Dr. L. Abraham Mata has joined the practice of Advanced Cardiac and Vascular Centers for Amputation Prevention. A vascular surgeon, Mata practices in ACV’s Grand Rapids and Lansing offices, offering comprehensive vascular care.
A native of El Paso, Texas, Mata moved to Michigan to join the practice after attending an ACV training seminar and learning about the great care patients receive at ACV. Mata performs endovascular interventions for patients with peripheral artery disease, or PAD, and critical limb ischemia, or CLI, at both locations. He also treats patients with venous disease. Procedures that require hospitalization are performed at McLaren Greater Lansing.
Since opening its first office in Grand Rapids in February 2018, ACV has experienced significant growth, including the opening of a Lansing office. ACV was founded by uncle-nephew duo Dr. Jihad A. Mustapha and Dr. Fadi A. Saab, who specialize in treating PAD and the complications of CLI.
“Dr. Mata has fully embraced the ACV culture of focusing on patients first,” Mustapha said. “After he attended one of our training sessions, we immediately knew we had to have him on our team. His patient-centric approach coupled with a strong skillset made him the perfect candidate to help grow our multidisciplinary practice.
“Patients already love Dr. Mata and we couldn’t be happier to have him on the team.”
Mata holds his medical degree from University of Texas and his bachelor’s degree from Texas Tech University. Prior to joining ACV, he worked for a private practice in McAllen, Texas. Mata completed his fellowship at West Virginia University Charleston Area Medical Center and his residency at Texas Tech Health Science Center in Lubbock, Texas.
“I look forward to continuing to grow as a vascular surgeon and specialist,” Mata said. “I love being a part of this team, and look forward to interacting with our patients in ways that go beyond their expectations. They deserve no less.”
