In addition to seeing patients downtown at VCU Health, our surgeons also see their patients at the Baird Vascular Institute, located near Richmond's West End, just off 195 at 205 N. Hamilton Street. A state-of-the-art facility offering customized care tailored to the needs of the vascular patient.
The Division of Vascular Surgery at VCU has several ongoing clinical research programs underway, including outcomes research related to lower extremity revascularization using various endovascular techniques. Vascular Fellow Hamed Taheri, MD, presented his research study Use of Peak Ankle Velocity (PAV) to Assess Lower Extremity Arterial Insufficiency (LEAI) at this year's Surgery Research Day.
Recent Vascular Fellows have presented their work at regional and national meetings on a variety of topics including lower extremity bypass, dialysis access, aneurysm management, and upper extremity deep venous thrombosis management. Although there is no dedicated research rotation at present, our current Fellows find adequate time to work on clinical research projects particularly when they are on their Interventional and Ambulatory/Community Based rotations.
