Why You’ll Remember Us

Concern. Ours is with the patient, and not only with our practice’s patients. Dr. Williams helped organize and participates in vascular clinics in multiple locations in Central Illinois for examination or follow-up of those who are unable to travel to Peoria.

Experience. Dr. Williams has performed thousands of surgical and endovascular procedures successfully, and also teaches other doctors performing the same procedures all over the country.

First. Dr. Williams was one of the first surgeons to perform endoluminal aortic grafting in the Peoria area for aneurysms of the aorta.

Commitment. We are committed to this area of the state and to expanding the medical services available. Largely through Dr. Williams’ efforts many new techniques have been brought to this area. With the expansion of specialized operating rooms called “endosuites”, operations and minimally invasive techniques can be performed together.

From James B. Williams, M.D.

"I consider it a great honor and priviledge to serve the people of this region as your cardiovascular surgeon. I will strive to deliver the best and most current cardiovascular care."

- James B. Williams, M.D.
