Why did you become a vascular surgeon?
The main reason was my love of the technical nature of open procedures. In residency I also had tremendous mentorship from young attendings as well as more experienced attendings who inspired me with their hands and their minds. In addition, I wanted to be apart of the “Endovascular Revolution” that we are currently and I think will continue, to experience.
Why did you join the VESS?
I was a young fresh attending and I was lucky to be influenced by young and very talented colleagues. They encouraged me to join.
