 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
My main interest is providing the highest quality care to my patients using the latest minimally invasive procedures to treat peripheral vascular disease.

I received my Bachelor of Arts degree with honors in Chemistry and Philosophy from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. I graduated from New York University School of Medicine in 1997 and then left "the city" to the cold of upstate New York.

I pursued my residency training in General Surgery at the University of Rochester in the Department of Surgery. During residency, I took a sabbatical as the "Harvard-Longwood Research Fellow in Vascular Surgery". This fellowship is a highly selective and prestigious research fellowship in vascular surgery at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts. During this fellowship I performed research in the molecular biology of vascular disease. My research was supported by the National Institutes of Health.

I lectured across the country and published in numerous prestigious journals during this time. I returned to Rochester, New York to complete my general surgery training. During this busy time, I published several papers and lectured on minimally invasive treatments for peripheral vascular disease. I ventured out of the cold to the west coast (much to the delight of my wife) to learn the latest minimally invasive techniques in vascular and endovascular surgery at the University of California, San Francisco. I completed a fellowship in the highly acclaimed Department of Vascular and Interventional Radiology at UCSF. Then, I completed one of the premiere fellowships in the country in the world renowned Department of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery at UCSF.

I received unique hybrid fellowship training at UCSF in vascular and interventional radiology and vascular surgery in one of the only programs of its kind in the country allowing me to offer the full spectrum of treatment options from catheter based minimally invasive therapy (angioplasty and stents) to traditional operative therapy for patients with vascular disease.

I have been practicing at Kaiser Permanente since 2006.

My research interests include minimally invasive treatments for stroke and carotid artery disease, aortic and peripheral aneurysmal disease, and peripheral vascular disease. I have authored more than 30 articles in peer reviewed journals and lectured at several national meetings.

I serve as the technology lead for the department to help incorporate technology into our department's practice.
