Academic Philosophy

"It is my objective to continue to provide cutting edge endovascular and open vascular reconstructions to my patients to continue breakthrough clinical research and to help train the next generation of leaders in surgery"

Research Interests

  • Clinical outcomes research focusing on carotid occlusive disease abdominal aortic aneurysms and peripheral vascular occlusive disease with a focus on identifying risk factors that predict for adverse outcomes
