We emphasize the prevention of peripheral vascular disease through patient education, exercise, and counseling services for smoking cessation and dietary modification. Research is fostered to better understand and treat vascular disease, through clinical trials, basic science, and clinical outcomes research. Faculty are committed to educate the next generation of leaders in vascular care. The program provides the highest quality care to our patients, as well as high quality education to the fellows. Fellows are educated not only through didactics but through exposure to our tremendous case volume in both open and endovascular techniques across a diverse patient population. The program is committed to preparing our trainees to become leaders in various settings such as academic centers, community hospitals and military/veteran hospitals for a successful vascular surgery career. Upstate Medical Center and affiliated hospitals serve as the prototypical academic training centers where supervised didactic experiential learning has been fostered for many decades. The faculty here at the forefront in many aspects of vascular surgery, including complex endovascular repair of abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysm and national quality initiatives such as the Vascular Quality Initiative.

There is access to hybrid/ Heart and Vascular center operating rooms with state-of-the-art Siemens system as well as a separate open–only operating room with access to C-arm imaging that allows for greater availability to the operating room for various cases.
