Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship
This three-year, ACGME-approved fellowship positions graduates to become leaders in the field of cardiovascular disease and provides excellent training and experience in the following areas:
- Stress Testing
- Cardiac catheterization
- Clinical electrophysiology
Interventional Cardiology Fellowship
This ACGME-approved fellowship prepares physicians to function at a high level of clinical performance in interventional cardiology, including the development of both the appropriate clinical judgment in selecting patients for cardiac interventional procedures and the high-level of technical skills needed to perform them.
Vascular Surgery Fellowship
This two-year fellowship program teaches surgery trainees the latest surgical techniques that will make them high-performing open and endovascular surgeons. The program also provides endovascular interventional experience and clinical noninvasive vascular laboratory education, as well as operative experience on how to treat all types of vascular conditions, including aortic disease, aneurysms, and traumatic vascular injuries.
The Division of Vascular is dedicated to serving the needs of patients with peripheral vascular disease in the State of West Virginia and surrounding region. A wide variety of traditional open surgical procedures are offered for the treatment of carotid, aneurysmal, peripheral arterial occlusive disease and dialysis access construction.
In addition, a very busy and active program in endovascular intervention/minimally invasive surgery is conducted including: diagnostic angiography (carotid to tibial, including renal), endovascular aneurysm repair (thoracic and abdominal) using all of the currently FDA approved devices, peripheral arterial intervention, carotid artery angioplasty and stent placement, dialysis access intervention and endovenous RF/laser closure of varicose veins.
The Division also oversees an active ICAVL accredited non-invasive vascular diagnostic laboratory located at Ruby Memorial Hospital/West Virginia University Hospitals, Inc. The vascular laboratory offers a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic services, including carotid artery duplex imaging, venous duplex imaging, visceral, renal and peripheral arterial duplex imaging, physiologic testing for lower extremity arterial occlusive vascular disease and ultrasound guided thrombin injection for the treatment of iatrogenic femoral artery false aneurysms.
The Division also provides recognized leadership in vascular surgery education locally and regionally. One of the missions of the Division is to reduce the morbidity and disability from vascular disease in the region by participating in educational/outreach programs.
