Dr. Greg Westin provides comprehensive care to patients with a variety of conditions involving the blood vessels. He graduated from Harvard College and completed his pre-medical studies at Columbia University.
Dr. Westin offers patients a wide variety of time-tested surgical treatments. These include:
- Surgical creation of access for hemodialysis (AV fistulae and grafts)
- Femoropopliteal or femorotibial bypass
- Endovascular or open abdominal aortic aneurysm repair
- Anterior spine exposure
- Carotid endarterectomy
- All manner of catheter-based procedures for arteries and veins
Dr. Westin believes the best care for patients with vascular disease is built on conversations. This includes conversations with patients and their families to ensure he understands their goals and concerns. His goal is to help them understand as much as possible about their diseases and possible interventions. He pursues conversations with primary care physicians, specialists in related fields, and other health care providers to help them understand vascular issues and to use their expertise.
He also has experience with advanced new techniques currently only available in a few select centers. These include endovascular arteriovenous fistula creation, trans-carotid artery revascularization (TCAR), endovascular thoracoabdominal aneurysm repair, and retrograde tibial artery endovascular treatments.
Dr. Westin is a skilled and enthusiastic educator, researcher, and participant in academic medicine. He has published over 15 peer-reviewed articles. He has also published many conference presentations, abstracts, and book chapters. He has served on multiple local and national committees and taught trainees at various levels. He maintains a robust translational research agenda, primarily focused on chronic limb-threatening ischemia; current projects include a study of mesenchymal stem cells in ischemic skeletal muscle, angiogenesis in ischemic limbs, tissue nanotransfection, and the healing of diabetic foot wounds.
He received his medical degree from the University of California, Davis, where he was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. During his time at UC Davis, he received a T32 Predoctoral Clinical Research Training Program Fellowship from the National Institutes of Health and obtained a master's degree in clinical research. He completed subspecialty training in vascular surgery at New York University (NYU).
