Dr. Philip Dombrowski is board certified in diagnostic radiology and fellowship trained in vascular and interventional radiology. He grew up in coastal Connecticut and graduated Summa Cum Laude from Harvard College. After graduation, he went on to the University of Rochester Medical School, where he met his wife. He continued his training as an intern in internal medicine at Hartford Hospital, followed by a residency in diagnostic radiology at Mary Hitchcock Hospital at Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH. He then went on to a fellowship in interventional radiology at the University of Virginia. Following his training, Dr. Dombrowski established an interventional practice on the South Shore, where previously, all patients had to go to Boston for care. While raising his three daughters, he established interventional services at Falmouth Hospital, Cape Cod Hospital, Tobey Hospital, and Jordan Hospital in Plymouth.
Dr. Dombrowski has always valued working collaboratively with other specialists for the benefit of his patients. He was a partner in a cardiovascular group, including interventional cardiologists and vascular surgeons. Dr. Dombrowski has been employed by Cape Cod Healthcare for the past 10 years as Chief of Interventional Radiology. He worked closely with the interventional cardiology team, implementing a very successful, state-of-the-art TAVR program, which is percutaneous aortic stent replacement for severe aortic valve narrowing.
Dr. Dombrowski has always been on the cutting edge of emerging techniques. He has been involved with numerous carotid stent protocols and working with vascular surgeons to develop an aortic stent graft program. More recently, Dr. Dombrowski has been involved with prostrate artery embolizations for benign prostrate hypertrophy as an alternative to surgery. He also provides other innovative techniques for the treatment of degenerative changes of the knee and treatment of blood clots in the leg and pulmonary emboli.
Dr. Dombrowski brings his years of experience, love for his craft, and for treating his patients to Western Massachusetts. He feels that there is nothing more rewarding than having a positive impact on his patients’ quality of life.
