My clinical interests include aortic disease, limb salvage and deep venous disease. I’m particularly interested in emerging technologies and complex endovascular techniques. Additionally, I’m passionate about innovations in surgical education. I also have a strong interest in healthcare policy and incentives. My research focuses on clinical outcomes and health services.
I like to draw and paint. I enjoy the outdoors and whenever possible visit our amazing national parks.
Why did you become a vascular surgeon?
There are so many reasons! As vascular surgeons we have the ability to provide comprehensive vascular care to patients. Not many specialties can say that. I like that we treat a wide variety of pathologies all over the body and have a variety of tools in our armamentarium to choose from. There’s also great deal of planning that goes into complex vascular surgery and I find that to be the biggest selling point. I enjoy solving problems, collaborating with colleagues, and thinking out of the box.
Why did you join the VESS?
I joined the VESS as a fellow. I found it to be very welcoming and supportive of young surgeons. VESS has provided me the opportunity to contribute to my specialty, join committees, and grow in the process.
