Biography
I am currently the Chief of Vascular Surgery at both the Mount Sinai Queens and Metropolitan Hospitals from October 2014- October 2015 and also a member of an eight person academic group at Mt Sinai and a full academic member in the Mount Sinai Division of Vascular Surgery. I hold the academic rank of an assistant professor of surgery and radiology within the Icahn School of Medicine. I operate fully at Mt Sinai Medical Center and also at Mt Sinai Queens where I have grown the vascular surgery exponentially and increased the volume of vascular surgery there eight fold over the last three and half years. I am board-certified in Vascular Surgery (2011); Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery (2009); and General Surgery (2003 & recertified, 2011). I am certified in the Registered Vascular Physician Interpretation (RPVI) exam as well. I completed my vascular and endovascular surgery training at the St Louis University, my General surgery at MCP/Hahnemann and my thoracic and cardiovascular surgery at the University of Maryland. I am fully trained in all open and endovascular techniques of the carotid artery; brachiocephalic and renal interventions; hemodialysis access; office venous ablations; and thoracic and abdominal aortic, iliac and lower extremity artery open and endovascular interventions. After completing my vascular fellowship, I went into a busy practice in the Midwest prior to moving to New York City and was at the State University of New York Downstate Medical School prior to coming to Mount Sinai. From a research standpoint, I have two IRB approved studies underway and another awaiting approval. I am a sub-investigator on eight IRB approved clinical trials that are currently underway in our Division and am Site PI on the Aptus Endoanchor device. Previously, I served on the Editorial Board for the Endovascular Portal website for the Cardiothoracic Surgery Network (www.CTSnet.org; http://www.ctsnet.org/portals/endovascular/index.html) from Aug 2008-May 2010 and was the Chief Editor Quarterly Literature Watch and Literature Review Referee for the same Endovascular Portal website for the Cardiothoracic Surgery Network (www.CTSnet.org; http://www.ctsnet.org/portals/endovascular/index.html) from Aug 2008-Aug 2010.
