The Division of Vascular Surgery is comprised of 13 surgeons and experts in their field, led by division head Dr. Sherene Shalhub. Dr. Shalhub joined OHSU in 2023 and is a vascular surgeon, translational researcher, and an educator. Her overarching research goal is to personalize health care for Individuals with genetically triggered vascular conditions associated with aortic/arterial dissections and aneurysms, and improve success of surgical repair and long term survival for these patients. Currently, Dr. Shalhub is investigating the effect of gene mutations on vascular disease by utilizing a collaborative multidisciplinary approach combining genetics and surgical outcomes. She and the vascular surgery division are passionate about mentoring the next generation of young surgeons and scientists. As leaders in vascular health, our surgeons provide excellent patient care while maintaining educational and research-rich programs to train surgeons and researchers and enhance their understanding of the vascular system.

Educational opportunities:

Our division offers both a 2-year Vascular and Endovascular Surgery fellowship as well as an integrated residency program for Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Training. The Department of Surgery's general surgery residency program includes a vascular surgery rotation and specialization as well.

Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Training

Our Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Training Program offers a 2-year fellowship as well as an integrated residency. Our program offers experience in complex endovascular aortic procedures and lower extremity interventions as well as complex open operations, including aortic surgeries, mesenteric bypasses, and leg bypasses. Our trainees participate in a wide variety of combined surgeries with various other sub-specialists to provide anterior spine exposures, porto-mesenteric or caval reconstructions, and arterial reconstruction for oncologic resections. Research is encouraged, and there is ample opportunity to present at regional and national meetings and produce peer-reviewed publications during training regardless of the training (0+5 or 5+2) track.
