As a vascular surgeon, I am skilled in treating aneurysms, including aortic, abdominal aortic, thoracic aortic, visceral artery, iliac artery and renal artery. I also provide treatment for failed endovascular aneurysm repair, infected arterial grafts, carotid artery disease and peripheral vascular disease.
I graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology with a degree in Computer Engineering and worked for several years in industry designing x-ray imaging systems. I then went on to receive my medical degree from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry with a Distinction in Research.
In addition to being an Assistant Professor of Vascular Surgery at UR Medicine, I am currently a Research Assistant Professor at Rochester Institute of Technology and Director of Research for the UR Medicine Division of Vascular Surgery. I also hold the position of Director of the University of Rochester Cardiovascular Engineering Lab, which is researching novel ultrasound imaging and 3D printing techniques to examine patient-specific aortic tissue properties and treatment strategies for aortic aneurysmal disease.
