About Me

I was first introduced to medicine by my father, who was an obstetrician and gynecologist. As a child, I was moved by his patients’ stories of how he had helped them and the fondness with which they spoke of him. It’s what convinced me to become a doctor. In medical school, I was drawn to vascular surgery because of its hands-on approach to care, as well as the technique and attention to detail it required.

As a vascular surgeon I treat people who require surgery on blood vessels located in any part of the body, including the abdomen, arms, legs, neck, and chest. However, my treatment does not begin and end with surgery. Often, I work with people who have many different conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease, and I establish ongoing relationships with them to monitor their conditions.

Some conditions that once required surgery can now be treated with minimally invasive procedures, allowing people to go home the same day of their treatment. Also, many procedures can be performed in an outpatient setting or in our office, so people don’t have to go to the hospital.

Currently, I am researching new ways to use medications and minimally invasive procedures to treat people who have chronic blockages in their leg and pelvis veins. I am always searching for more effective and less invasive ways to manage conditions, in order to improve my patients’ lives.

I am fortunate to have been working at NYU Langone for 30 years. The beauty of working at an academic medical center is that I can combine my passion for patient care with my interests in teaching and research, all while using the most advanced technology. I have the privilege of collaborating with physicians, students, and residents on a daily basis, all of whom serve as a source of inspiration.
