I am among the first generation of vascular surgeons who consider themselves “interventionalists” in addition to surgeons. This approach to patient care gives me many tools to diagnose and treat vascular disease but offers the patients the best of both worlds. I feel this training puts me in a unique situation to care for patients with vascular disease, and virtually eliminates the “if you only have a hammer” cliché, which is very prominent when other specialists treat patients with vascular disease. I hope to be able to educate patients and providers with the knowledge to push patients for the best operation for their disease as much as possible.
