Surgery; Surgery - Vascular
The practice of vascular surgery has changed dramatically in the last decade, largely as a result of rapid adoption of technologic advances by most vascular surgeons, and I am proud and happy to be a part of this evolution. We the vascular surgeons do not consider ourselves as just surgeons, but "therapists" of vascular disease. This mainly stems from our better understanding of the natural history of vascular diseases, and their treatment. Our capability of doing both surgery and minimally-invasive procedures puts us in the best position on treat the millions of complicated patients with vascular disease.
I am privileged to work with veterans with very complicated vascular problems, and we perform about 700 vascular and endovascular interventions yearly. My main areas of clinical and research interests are abdominal aortic aneurysms (esp. stent graft repair), limb salvage interventions (bypasses and angioplasty/stenting procedures), and carotid artery disease. I also have an interest in wound healing, and hold a wound clinic once a week.
