Additional Information

I have been working as a board-certified vascular surgeon in a tertiary academic practice in Grand Rapids, MI for the last 8 years. Though my skills have remained broad over that time, my involvement in our Carotid and Endovascular Board has provided me specific expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with carotid artery occlusive disease, with or without stroke. As one of the founding members in 2014, I continue to be involved in this weekly multi-disciplinary collaborative case review of challenging patients with various pathologies of ischemic brain events. Also, during most of my time in Grand Rapids, I have been the quality lead of our busy vascular surgery group. That position has kept me heavily involved in our group’s quality metrics, and constantly seeking strategies to improve patient outcomes. It has also given me the opportunity to participate as a Physician Champion in the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Collaborative Quality Initiative (BMC2), in which I have assisted in review of internal and external medical case records for determination of appropriateness of care.
