Division Chief's Message
The Division of Vascular Surgery at the University of Missouri is committed to providing the best quality of care for our patients and the community.
We are the largest academic tertiary regional referral center for vascular surgery in Mid-Missouri, providing complex quaternary care at University Hospitals. As the region's only academic vascular surgery fellowship, we have built specialist programs for complex aortic aneurysm management, cerebrovascular disorders, peripheral arterial disease and limb salvage, dialysis access and venous disorders to serve the vascular needs of the region.
The Division of Vascular Surgery has maintained a 2-year ACGME-accredited fellowship for over 30 years. Many of our fellows have gone on to become leaders in the field of vascular surgery around the country. We believe strongly in graduated responsibility toward clinical and operative autonomy. Our goal is that every fellow be proficient and prepared for the breadth and complexity of vascular surgery.
The Division of Vascular Surgery has an active research presence and is involved in a number of national clinical trials, ranging from lower extremity in-stent restenosis trials, best approaches for critical limb ischemia, carotid interventions and outcomes for AAA. In addition to clinical innovation, we have a strong history of clinical outcomes research using national databases such as the VQI, NIS, Medicare MedPAR, NSQIP, and Cerner® HealthFacts EMR data.
Thank you for your interest in the vascular surgery fellowship program at MU. We invite you to contact fellowship director Jonathan Bath, MD, with any questions you may have.
Chief, Division of Vascular Surgery
