INTRODUCING DR. ENRIQUE CRIADO: Our New Chief of Vascular Surgery

We are very pleased to introduce Enrique Criado, MD, FACS, who has joined our faculty as chief of vascular surgery. Board-certified in general vascular surgery and with special expertise in endovascular surgery, Dr. Criado will add new strength to our vascular surgery services, and his clinical and research abilities will further enhance the University Vascular Center at Stony Brook.

Dr. Criado comes to Stony Brook from the University of Maryland, where he was an associate professor practicing at the Vascular Center of Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, MD. Prior to his appointment there, Dr. Criado was a tenured associate professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Internationally recognized for his pioneering work in the design and testing of endovascular grafts, Dr. Criado was one of the first surgeons in the United States involved in the development and testing of endografts for abdominal aortic aneurysms. He was also one of the principal investigators for one of the early FDA trials on a prototype of endograft for the treatment of such aneurysms.

Dr. Criado completed his residency training in both general surgery and general vascular surgery at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he subsequently joined the surgical faculty and established himself as a prominent academic surgeon.

At Stony Brook, Dr. Criado will serve as director of our Division of Vascular Surgery, and will practice the full range of general vascular surgery, adding further experience to our endovascular program.

In addition to his clinical duties and responsibilities, Dr. Criado will serve as program director of our residency (fellowship) training program in vascular surgery.
