“My goal as a vascular surgeon is to ensure the needs of the patient come first. My approach to patient care is to provide compassion, respect, integrity and teamwork to deliver excellent care.”

Areas of Expertise:

• Endovascular patient-specific thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms

• Open and endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms

• Open aortoiliac reconstruction

• Peripheral arterial disease

• Spine exposure


Patients with vascular disease are often faced with complex chronic disorders that challenge them physically and emotionally. These issues are not always straightforward and require creative solutions to provide patients with the best long-term care and quality of life. I embrace having lasting relationships with vascular patients with the goal of integrating the preventative model of primary care.

In addition to being Assistant Professor of Vascular Surgery, I have a strong interest in medical education and curriculum development. I treat a spectrum of vascular diseases and conditions including aortic aneurysms, aortoiliac occlusive disease, aortic ulcers, arteriovenous fistulas, carotid artery disease, critical limb ischemia, mesenteric ischemia, peripheral arterial disease, thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms, vascular graft infections, varicose veins, venous insufficiency and visceral artery aneurysms. I am highly skilled in complex endovascular and open aortic reconstruction and have experience with rare vascular diseases.
