Shant Vartanian, M.D.

Vascular surgeon

Dr. Shant Vartanian is a vascular surgeon at the UCSF Heart and Vascular Center who treats patients with vascular diseases such as aneurysms, carotid artery disease and peripheral artery disease. In his research, he studies endovascular treatments for peripheral artery disease to help doctors and their patients make informed decisions about treatment options.

Vartanian earned a medical degree at Saint Louis University in Missouri. He completed a general surgery residency at UCSF and spent two years in the Laboratory for Accelerated Vascular Research, focusing on notch signaling and how that plays a critical role in vascular morphology during embryonic vascular development. He completed a fellowship in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery at UCSF, where he is an assistant professor of surgery.
