Professor of Surgery/Vascular Medicine
Univ South Carolina Sch of Med/Greenville
I attended medical school at the Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine, followed by an internal medicine residency in Columbus, Ohio and formal training in vascular medicine, including peripheral intervention, at Cleveland Clinic. My training began before stents were available, which allowed the early adoption of new devices for carotid, AAA, PAD, and VTE treatment. I have participated in numerous clinical trials involving all of these areas, and have been privileged to work alongside outstanding mentors, fellows, and residents with backgrounds in vascular medicine, surgery, cardiology, and radiology.
For the past 19 years, I have been the director of Endovascular Services at Prisma Health in Greenville, South Carolina. I am also a professor of Surgery/Vascular Medicine at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville.
Inside the profession, I have a passion to see vascular medicine grow and proliferate. While on the board of the Society for Vascular Medicine in 2003, the leadership directed the formation of the American Board of Vascular Medicine, which I have directed since.
