About Me

As a vascular surgeon at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I specialize in the treatment and prevention of all vascular diseases. I am board certified in both surgery and vascular surgery and I perform endovascular, as well as minimally invasive procedures. I treat patients with aortic aneurysms, thoracic outlet syndrome and carotid disease, among other vascular conditions.

Some of my research interests include stem cell drug delivery, tissue engineering and outcomes research. As a funded investigator for over 25 years, I investigate the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying vascular disease. My goal is to identify and create new therapeutic targets to eventually use to improve patient care.

I enjoy working at an academic medical center like Ohio State because of the various opportunities that are available in research, education and patient care.
