The Vascular & Endovascular Surgery Department of WVU-Charleston Division is comprised of an elite group of interdisciplinary, full-time faculty members, including six full-time vascular/endovascular surgeons and three endovascular interventional specialists (two interventional cardiologists and one vascular medicine specialist with intervention focus), all of whom are dedicated to the education and success of our young surgeons.
Many of our trainees have cited a desire to work with our faculty members as their reason for choosing our institution. Trainees are integral to the Vascular team and build strong interpersonal relationships with the faculty and staff.
