DR. WILLIAM T. KUO, MD, FSIR, FCCP, FSVM, FCIRSE, is Professor of Vascular & Interventional Radiology at Stanford University School of Medicine where he is Director of the IR Fellowship Program, Director of the IR-DR Residency Program, and Founding Director of the Stanford IVC Filter Clinic. Dr. Kuo is a recognized expert on advanced IVC filter retrieval, venous interventions, and catheter-directed therapy (CDT) for acute PE. His landmark PE meta-analysis was the first to reveal the safety and effectiveness of CDT as a life-saving procedure for acute PE, leading to major changes in treatment guidelines; and he initiated the world’s first multicenter registry on CDT for acute PE. He has written many seminal and award-winning papers, and his work is cited in all major guidelines on antithrombotic therapy.

At Stanford, Dr. Kuo pioneered several techniques including excimer laser-assisted IVC filter retrieval for which he received the 2011 Gary Becker Young Investigator Award, and his team at Stanford was the first to perform this procedure in humans. His innovations have changed the paradigm on managing embedded vena cava filters, allowing thousands more patients each year to achieve successful filter removal. He is frequently invited to lecture nationally and abroad, and he has testified as an expert before the FDA. Dr. Kuo has established the Stanford IVC Filter Clinic as a quaternary referral center that accepts challenging cases from around the country and around the world. His innovative work has been featured on multiple media outlets including ABC and NBC Nightly News.
