About

Bio

I spent the first 15 years of my career in academic practice, developing new procedures and training the next generation of physicians in Vascular and Interventional Radiology. For the six-year period immediately prior to joining Swedish, I was the Chief of Vascular and Interventional Radiology at the University of Washington. I am fortunate enough to have had a role in the development of many medical procedures and techniques that are now routine, including Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE), minimally-invasive therapy for varicose veins and venous insufficiency, and the use of stents and stent-grafts (endografts) for the treatment of peripheral vascular disease and aneurysms. I enjoy wakeboarding, snow skiing, and biking with my wife and two young daughters.

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.
