About Us

Philosophers have long said, “The whole is more than the sum of its parts,” and that reasoning certainly applies to the circulatory system.  Blood vessels are miniscule when considered individually, but if laid end to end, they would stretch more than two times around the globe.   Those vessels work in conjunction with veins and arteries to handle the more than 51 million gallons of blood that circulate through a body by the time someone is 70 years old.  It’s a complex system as a whole, and when vascular disease threatens any part of it, our team of Vascular Surgeons at The GW Medical Faculty Associates is ready to offer comprehensive diagnostic and treatment options to repair the damage.

Who We Are:

The Division of Vascular Surgery at The GW Medical Faculty Associates is a group of physicians with a broad range of interests and experience in all forms of vascular problems, both surgical and non-surgical.  We specialize in caring for patients with peripheral vascular disease, aneurysms, aortic dissection and carotid artery disease.  Our commitment to patients is singular; our treatment regimens are diverse, including: non-invasive diagnosis, medical therapy, vascular surgery and interventional procedures.  We are an academic Vascular Surgical Practice whose mission is to provide superior care and utilize the most effective techniques in the treatment of Vascular Diseases.

As a patient, or as a physician referring a patient, you have the convenience of having specialists from several disciplines all in one location.  Whether it is inpatient or outpatient services, advanced preventative care or participating in clinical trials, The GW Medical Faculty Associates Vascular Diseases Program offers it all.

We diagnose and treat:

  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm
  • Aortic dissection
  • Carotid artery disease
  • Claudication
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Diabetic foot
  • Lymphedema
  • Mesenteric ischemia
  • Peripheral aneurysm
  • Peripheral artery disease
  • Renal artery disease
  • Thoracic aortic aneurysm
  • Varicose veins
  • Venous insufficiency


Your physician may utilize:

  • Ultrasound technology to diagnose carotid artery disease to prevent stroke, detect decreased blood flow to the legs to prevent amputation and diagnose abdominal aortic aneurysms
  • Carotid, leg bypass, aortic and varicose vein surgeries
  • Vascular interventional laboratory to treat vascular disorders minimally invasively
  • Non-invasive diagnostic vascular laboratory for the screening, diagnoses and follow-up services for individuals with possible or existing vascular conditions

Our specific methods of treatment include:

  • Bypass surgery
  • Endartectomy
  • Angioplasty
  • Endovascular aneurysm repair
  • Endovascular therapy
  • Endovenous ablation
  • Open aneurysm repair
  • Stent
  • Surgical vein stripping
  • Thoracic Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (TEVAR)
  • Thrombolytic therapy


Although peripheral vascular disease can often be treated with lifestyle changes and risk factor management, medications (such as sclerosing agents or blood thinners), catheter-based treatments or open surgery may be required.
