Linda Reilly, M.D.

Vascular surgeon

Dr. Linda Reilly is a vascular surgeon with particular interest in the management of infected vascular bypass grafts, endovascular aneurysm repair, complex aortic reconstruction and endoluminal treatment of vascular disease.

Reilly received a medical degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine and completed a residency in general surgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, where she was the first woman to complete the training program. She went on to pursue specialty training in vascular surgery at the University of California, San Francisco, and remained at UCSF as a vascular surgeon as well as a member of the faculty. Reilly is the program director for the UCSF General Surgery Residency Training Program and president of the medical staff at UCSF.
