My interest in medicine and surgery was initially sparked when we covered dissections in my ninth grade biology class. I found anatomy absolutely fascinating, and it was at that time that I first thought about being a surgeon. Several years later, when I was 16 years old, my mother gave me a book called The Making of a Woman Surgeon by Dr. Elizabeth Morgan, which I devoured. By the time I arrived at college, I knew I wanted to attend medical school and was set on a career in surgery. My medical school surgery rotation further cemented my interest.

At NYU Langoneā€™s Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery and Vein Center, I treat people who have all types of vascular conditions, including carotid artery disease, hardening of the arteries of the legs, and varicose veins and other vein disorders.

I enjoy vascular surgery because the proper course of care is not necessarily determined by test results alone. Rather, our patientsā€™ needs and concerns guide our decision-making process. As a vascular surgeon, my expertise allows me to offer people a variety of treatmentsā€”watching and waiting, both open surgery and minimally invasive endovascular procedures, as well as medical therapies. One of the most rewarding parts of my work is being able to help a patient avoid major surgery after theyā€™ve been told elsewhere that they need an invasive operation.

My clinical research focuses on improving outcomes for people who have vascular disease, and on differences in outcomes of open and minimally invasive procedures. I am also interested in the differences between female and male patients with regard to results of vascular surgical procedures.

In addition to my work in clinical patient care and research, I am director of NYU Langoneā€™s vascular surgery residency and fellowship programs. I am also currently the president-elect of the Society for Clinical and Vascular Surgery.
