About the Author

Alan B Lumsden MD, Chief of Vascular Surgery and EndovascularTherapy, Professor of Surgery, Baylor College of Medicine
Dr Lumsden is a graduate of University of Edinburgh, Scotland.He completeted his general and vascular surgery training at EmoryUniversity in Atlanta, where he joined the faculty and rose tobecome chief of the division of vascular surgery. Moving to Houstonin 2002, he become the chief of the division of vascular surgery,following in the footsteps of Dr Michael E DeBakey. At Baylor avery robust endovascular and research program was developedfocusing on minimally invasive vascular surgery. Dr Lumsden hasover 260 publications, 40 book chapters, one book and has an activeNIG grant examining use of lipid modication on outcomes of lowerextremity intervention.
