Provider Expertise

Clinical Interest for Patients

I led development of improved endovascular treatment for a wide range of vascular problems, including carotid stenosis, abdominal aortic aneurysm, thoracic aneurysm and dissection. I am currently focusing on developing team-based care for patients requiring spine fusion through an anterior approach.

Care Philosophy

I focus on the patient and family experience. A cohesive team approach is preferred for many complex problems. Most vascular problems may be managed conservatively with excellent long term success.

Research & Grants

Research Interests for Patients

My research interests have been focused on carotid stenosis, thoracic aortic disease, lower extremity ischemia, vena cava filter, and abdominal aortic aneurysm. I have led many pivotal trials that have established improved treatments for patients suffering from these problems. Subsequently, I have been deeply involved in the training of physicians-in-practice on how to optimally use these novel therapies. Recently, I have focused my efforts on studying and improving the team care of patients who require anterior lumbar interbody fusion.

Anterior Exposure in Partnership with Spine Surgeons: • Anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) • Artificial Disc • Infection and tumors of the spine and nerves

Research Interest for Referring Providers

My research interests are centered on less invasive treatment of vascular disease. I have led federal and industry funded randomized clinical trials for evaluating medical and device treatment of aortic aneurysm. I have a core imaging laboratory with funding since 1998. i have mentored over 35 undergraduates, medical students, graduate students, postdoctoral trainees, and junior faculty, over 70% of whom are members of underrepresented groups, and have been PI of a Vascular Research T32. I have published over 140 peer-reviewed articles and edited ten books.
