Biography

Dr. Lumsden’s academic career began in 1989 at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia where he completed his postdoctoral training and served as a Collaborative Scientist in the Division of Pathobiology and Immunology at the renowned Yerkes Primate Center. He remained at Emory for several years, rising to the rank of Associate Professor and Chief of the Division of Vascular Surgery. In 2002, Dr. Lumsden joined the faculty at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas as Professor and Chief of the Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy. He assumed his current positions at Houston Methodist in 2008.

Dr. Lumsden has developed an international reputation as a leader in the field of endovascular surgery. He has clinical and research expertise in stent graft treatment of thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysms, stenting and endarterectomy in carotid arterial disease, renovascular hypertension, aortoiliac occlusive disease, mesenteric vascular and minimally invasive therapy in venous disease. Dr. Lumsden also conducts FDA-mandated training for surgeons nationwide in a carotid stenting simulator housed at the Houston Methodist DeBakey Heart and Vascular Center.

Description of Research

Dr. Lumsden’s research interests include developing novel minimally invasive methods of therapy and preventing restenosis. His research has been funded by the National Institutes of Health, and he has contributed more than 200 papers to the medical literature, as well as numerous abstracts, books, and book chapters.
