About

Bio

A Midwesterner with training in Iowa and Kansas before vascular surgery fellowship in Massachusetts, I am now practicing in Springfield, Missouri with the Ferrell-Duncan Clinic at Cox Health. My two partners and I are the only board certified Vascular and Endovascular Surgeons in Southwest Missouri and provide advanced endovascular therapy for regional and national referrals. Our Endovenous Therapy and Vein Aesthetics Clinic is well recognized as a leader in the region and our services are supplemented by the only board certified Vascular Medicine Specialist in the region. It is our goal to provide superlative vascular, endovascular, and venous therapies in order to maintain or restore mobility, function and confidence for our patients using the most advanced technology available

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
