Welcome to Stanford Vascular and Endovascular Surgery. We are dedicated to the highest levels of patient care, professional education and clinical and translational research.

Ronald L. Dalman, MD Chidester Professor

and Division Chief of Vascular Surgery

The Division works continually to improve quality of life for patients with vascular diseases. We are privileged to work with an outstanding team of faculty and community vascular specialists, cardiologists and cardiac surgeons, radiologists, podiatrists, rehabilitation specialists, basic scientists, engineers and computer scientists. Our ongoing collaborations have promoted remarkable academic and clinical productivity involving new and dramatically improved techniques for the diagnosis and treatment of vascular disease, gaining the Division international recognition as a Vascular Center of Excellence.

The faculty is distinguished by expertise in many aspects of vascular disease management, but perhaps none more so than aortic aneurysm disease. Stanford Vascular Surgeons are recognized around the world as leaders in aortic aneurysm treatment and research.

2014 Faculty and Residents


The NIH/NHLBI awarded the CVI T32 training grant, "Mechanisms and Innovation in Vascular Disease" with a second five year period, extending it to 6/30/2020.  The program is led by Ron Dalman, MD and Phil Tsao, PhD, and administered through the CVI. It trains six post-doctoral fellows each year in vascular medicine and research, including vascular reactivity and thrombosis; vascular regeneration and development; metabolic or lifestyle influences on vascular outcomes; proteomic markers and genetic determinants of vascular disease; gender and ethnicity differences in vascular disease, and vascular bioengineering. Thirty faculty mentors from nineteen different departments / divisions within the School of Medicine and the University provide a variety of angles from which to address fundamental questions about vascular disease. Applications for training slots with start date in the fall of 2015 will be accepted through our website in the spring.  Further information and Application. Contact: David L. M.
