Assistant Professor of Surgery
Emory University School of Medicine
Dr. Olamide Alabi is Assistant Professor of surgery at Emory University School of Medicine. She received her medical degree from the University of Nebraska College of Medicine, trained in general surgery at Loma Linda University Medical Center in Southern California, and completed a fellowship in Vascular Surgery at the Oregon Health and Science University. During her time at OHSU, she was involved in the Vascular division's quality improvement and clinical program design and development efforts specific to aortic disease and chronic limb threatening ischemia. She was recruited to Emory's Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy a couple years ago given, among other things, her clinical and technical expertise in peripheral artery disease and passion for limb salvage.
Dr Alabi is an early career investigator with an academic platform that is based on bringing the field of vascular surgery closer to achieving health equity, particularly as it relates to access to care and quality of care in vulnerable populations. She aims to ensure quality improvement in surgical care for all. This includes addressing the social determinants of health as they relate to peripheral arterial disease and its management in order to bring the field closer to health equity. Her position at both Emory University as well as at the Atlanta VA places her in a unique position to review outcomes in varied populations who receive their care from very different healthcare systems. She is leveraging this wide breadth of populations to better understand access to care, patient-centered intervention options, how to decrease postoperative complications, and patient reported outcomes.
