About Me

As a vascular surgeon at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I specialize in complex arterial reconstructions involving the abdominal and thoracic aorta, peripheral blood vessels including critical limb ischemia, thoracic outlet syndrome and carotid artery disease.

I believe in exploring all options for new techniques in minimally invasive and conventional surgery, which I tailor to the patient’s needs and state of health. This usually requires a multidisciplinary approach to patient care.

My current research involves developing a new generation of endovascular stents to treat aortic aneurysms.

My favorite part about working at Ohio State is the spirit of the institution and the comradery among my colleagues.

When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my family, watching football, golfing, fishing and being outdoors.

    He wasn't happy about the test results I had prior to seeing him. He did not tell me anything about the results. Wanted me to get an Ultrasound that same day. Was gone from the treatment room in less than 5 minutes. I had no chance to ask him any questions that concerned me.
