Comparative effectiveness of endovacular interventions for lower extremity arterial disease
Endovascular interventions for acute and chronic aortic conditions
Dr. Vartanian graduated from Stanford University with a Bachelors degree in Biology and then went on to Saint Louis University for his medical education. He finished his general surgery residency at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) in 2010. During his residency, he spent two years working in the Laboratory for Accelerated Vascular Research (LAVR) under the direction of Rong Wang, Ph.D. His research focused on notch signaling and how that plays a critical role in vascular morphology during embryonic vascular development. Dr. Vartanian completed the fellowship in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery and is now on faculty at UCSF.
Dr. Vartanian is interested in comparing the effectiveness of endovascular treatments for peripheral arterial disease. By understanding the safety, effectiveness, and cost of each intervention, the aim of the research is to assist patients and clinicians in making informed decisions about treatment options.
