The Division of Vascular Surgery comprises our clinical faculty of four board-certified vascular surgeons, who work closely with our non-invasive vascular technology specialist, and two board-certified podiatric surgeons, together with their clinical and administrative support staff dedicated to our mission of excellence in the care of patients with vascular disorders; the education of medical students and surgical residents in the art of vascular surgery; the performance of basic and translational research aimed at advancing the management of vascular disease; and community service, such as free vascular screenings
The Division’s vascular surgeons have been recognized for their clinical excellence by selection for inclusion in the Castle Connolly Guides, Top Doctors: New York Metro Area, representing the top 10% of physicians in the New York Metropolitan area. In addition, they have been selected for inclusion in the Consumers' Research Council of America Guide to America's Top Surgeons.
The Division provides our podiatric surgery service whose specialists work closely with our vascular team in the comprehensive management of chronic wounds associated with diabetes. They also provide a full range of other podiatric services.
The University Vascular Center — established as collaboration between our Division of Vascular Surgery and the Departments of Radiology and of Neurology — provides diagnosis and treatment of vascular disease ranging from routine to highly complex cases, and offers a full complement of services for patients with vascular disease.
The Division of Vascular Surgery, in addition to playing an important role in the education of our medical students and general surgery residents, offers a five-year vascular surgery residency, as well as a traditional two-year residency (fellowship), both of which are fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.
With regard to research, the Division provides patients with the opportunity to participate in clinical trials that offer them the only local access to newly developed treatment options. Our vascular specialists have been selected to participate in national studies on stroke prevention, based on their excellent surgical results. Basic science research is done, as well, with the ultimate aim of improving patient care.
Together, the clinical and academic strengths of the Division of Vascular Surgery form the foundation of our continued success in achieving the excellence expected of us in our diverse programs of patient care, education, research, and community service.
