The Division of Vascular Surgery at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine is one of the premiere vascular surgery clinical, research, and training programs in the country. Providing comprehensive arterial and venous care for more than four decades, the Division provides both traditional and advanced open and cutting-edge endovascular therapy for a broad range of blood vessel disorders.
The clinical training programs in the Division cover the full spectrum of vascular care including treatment for aortic diseases in the thoracic and abdominal aorta, carotid surgery and stenting for stroke prevention, lower extremity arterial bypass and stenting for limb preservation, endovascular interventions for vascular disease, and a dedicated Vein Clinic focused on contemporary management of venous disorders. Clinical care is provided by board-certified vascular surgeons with advanced endovascular therapeutic experience, vascular surgery fellows and integrated residents, as well as highly experienced inpatient and outpatient advance practice providers.
In addition, the Division is actively involved in a number of clinical research studies dedicated to the advancement of vascular care with full time clinical coordinator support. Current trials include medical treatment to slow aneurysm growth, newer generation stent grafts for aortic aneurysms, unique devices to treat lower extremity arterial disease, and stem cell and gene therapy for advanced lower extremity vascular disease. Notably, the Division also has a well-developed NIH-funded basic science and translational research program in conjunction with a NIH funding training experience (Vascular Surgery Scientist Training Program).
Lastly, since 1974, the Northwestern Vascular Surgery Fellowship Program has continued to develop the next generation of future leaders in vascular surgery. Many trainees have been the recipients of Teaching Awards and several alumni have gone on to become medical school deans, department chairs and division chiefs. Surgical training options include the traditional vascular surgery fellowship as well as the newer integrated vascular surgery residency paradigm.
