About Me

I am very fortunate to have one of the few jobs in the world where I can wake up every morning at 5:30AM and run to work, because I know it’s going to be a great day.

I started to consider being a doctor when I was in a high school biology class. I was so fascinated by how everything worked inside organisms and cells. As I grew older, knowing that I could help people and save lives made becoming a doctor an obvious career choice for me.

I began training in general surgery at NYU Langone in 1981, but it was the blood vessels—the arteries and veins that carry blood through the body—that grabbed my attention and led me to specialize in vascular surgery.

I perform surgeries to treat diseases of the blood vessels and the surrounding structures. In 1994, I was particularly fortunate to have been one of a select few surgeons that initiated the field of minimally invasive surgery on the aorta, known as stent grafting. The aorta is the body’s largest artery, extending from the heart to the abdomen.

I treat each person as an individual, taking into account any emotional concerns that may arise. I also care for my patients long after treatment has ended. A professor of mine once described the importance of making a human connection with patients by telling me, “When you operate on a patient, you marry them.” I truly believe in this philosophy.
