The program provides the highest quality care to our patients, as well as high quality education to the fellows. Fellows work directly with attending staff in a variety of supervised settings including the inpatient floor, intensive care units, and the outpatient clinic. Fellows have opportunities to learn technical skills in the operating room, the catheterization lab, and in the clinic. Didactic education is provided via weekly case conference, journal club, morbidity/mortality conference, and a weekly grand round.
In addition, fellows can expect a substantial amount of clinical training through our tremendous case volume in both open and endovascular techniques across a diverse patient population. The Vascular Surgery Division directs the noninvasive vascular laboratory which is accredited by the Inter-Societal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories and performs a full gamut of studies to easily allow our trainees to graduate successfully with an RPVI certificate.
Patient Treatment Options
We utilize traditional open surgical techniques and minimally invasive endovascular approaches, as well as medical management, and clinical trials with specific treatment modalities individualized to the patient. In addition, our hybrid/ Heart and Vascular Center operating rooms are equipped with a state-of-the-art Siemens system, as well as a separate open–only operating room with access to C-arm imaging which allows for greater availability for various cases.
