Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy
Our Vascular Surgery Residency (5-2) and Vascular Surgery Integrated Residency (0-5) ACGME-accredited Training Programs provide comprehensive training in the care of vascular patients using the best medical, open surgical and catheter-based endoluminal therapy.
Focused clinical research activities include peripheral arterial disease (PAD), endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) and fenestrated EVAR (FEVAR) trials. Our faculty has received numerous funding awards including a $17-million Federal grant to study postoperative anemia and the threshold for transfusion in vascular surgery patients.
Among many other grants funded by federal or non-governmental agencies, we recently completed a Society for Vascular Surgery VISTA grant to reduce amputations and disparities within Harris Health System, our municipal health authority.
Our faculty and trainees routinely present their work at the annual meetings of nearly all the major vascular professional societies, with subsequent publications in the highest ranked surgical journals.
