Sikandar Z. Khan, MD
Vascular surgery has seen great advancement in the last two decades with introduction of minimally invasive endovascular techniques and devices. Vascular surgeons are not only required to stay up-to-date with the newest technologies, but also maintain the highest standards in traditional open surgery. I aim to provide comprehensive care to patients suffering from vascular diseases, including open surgical and minimally invasive treatment of peripheral arterial disease, venous disease, carotid disease, hemodialysis access, abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) and thoracic aortic aneurysm at Gates Vascular Institute (GVI)/Buffalo General Medical Center and Erie County Medical Center (ECMC). I am also involved in the care of trauma patients suffering from vascular injuries at ECMC.
I also have research interests in various aspects of vascular diseases including peripheral arterial disease and aortic aneurysm disease. Peripheral arterial disease has been my main focus and I have been involved in various studies investigating novel diagnostic and treatment modalities and their impact on our patients. I believe that technology can help us improve patient care but it should be rigorously tested before it is offered to our patients.
Education is an important part of my practice and I train medical students and residents to take care of vascular patients. Some of these trainees will become vascular surgeons, ensuring provision of care to vascular patients in the future.
