A CU Medicine provider.
I focus on the patient and family experience. A cohesive team approach is preferred for many complex problems. Most vascular problems may be managed conservatively with excellent long term success.
My family enjoys living in Colorado

- Clinical interest for patients
I led development of improved endovascular treatment for a wide range of vascular problems, including carotid stenosis, abdominal aortic aneurysm, thoracic aneurysm and dissection. I am currently focusing on developing team-based care for patients requiring spine fusion through an anterior approach.
- Research interest for patients
My research interests have been focused on carotid stenosis, thoracic aortic disease, lower extremity ischemia, vena cava filter, and abdominal aortic aneurysm. I have led many pivotal trials that have established improved treatments for patients suffering from these problems. Subsequently, I have been deeply involved in the training of physicians-in-practice on how to optimally use these novel therapies. Recently, I have focused my efforts on studying and improving the team care of patients who require anterior lumbar interbody fusion.
- Volunteer activities
I have helped develop a sustainable regional vascular training program in East Africa
