Biography

Dr. Bismuth received his medical degree from Copenhagen University in Copenhagen, Denmark and completed his surgical residency at The Brooklyn Hospital Center. Subsequently, he completed his Vascular Fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.

Dr. Bismuth is an active member of professional societies including The Society for Vascular Surgery, American College of Surgeons, American Medical Association, The Michael E. DeBakey International Surgical Society, The Danish Medical Association, and the Peripheral Vascular Surgery Society.

Dr. Bismuth is the recipient of a Society for Vascular Surgery grant and is a national PI for two major clinical trials in the US. His is also the recipient of the Dyer Fellowship Award to support his research in vascular surgery robotics, and imaging and computational fluid dynamics.

Description of Research

Dr. Bismuth’s clinical interests include the treatment of patients with aortic disease, carotid disease, mesenteric disease, venous disease, and lower extremity occlusive disease. He also has expertise in dialysis access and arterial and venous malformations.

His research focuses on robotics in vascular surgery, imaging in vascular surgery, plaque morphology and lipids in atherosclerosis, and preventive and medical interventions in vascular surgery. He also has basic science research programs in robotic aortic surgery and dynamic MRA imaging of aortic dissections.
