 Overview
The University of Rochester Medical Center is pleased to announce the addition of Ankur Chandra, M.D. as an Assistant Professor of Surgery. Dr. Chandra earned his undergraduate and medical degrees from Case Western Reserve University's School of Engineering and School of Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio. He later completed his internship and residency in general surgery, as well as a postdoctoral research fellowship, at the University of California, San Diego Medical Center.

Prior to joining URMC, Dr.Chandra was a vascular surgery fellow at the UCLA School of Medicine, Division of Vascular Surgery, in Los Angeles, California. He is currently a Certified Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation and is licensed to practice medicine in the states of California and New York.

In addition to being a National Merit Scholar and the recipient of numerous awards such as the Howard Hughes Memorial Institute Research Fellowship Award, Dr. Chandra has authored a wide variety of publications. He has served on various committees and has presented at meetings throughout the United States and Canada.

Dr. Chandra is also a member of professional organizations including the American College of Surgeons, American Medical Association, Society for Vascular Surgery, American Heart Association, Society of Clinical Vascular Surgery and Peripheral Vascular Surgery Society. His professional interests include the treatment of all aspects of vascular disease with an emphasis on minimally invasive treatment of lower extremity atherosclerosis and open/hybrid treatment of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms. His research focus is in vascular bioengineering and mathematical modeling of the arterial circulation.
