Timothy Chuter, MD

Vascular surgeon

Dr. Timothy Chuter is a vascular surgeon with a special interest in the use of branched and fenestrated stent-grafts to treat aneurysms of the aorta. Chuter designed, made and used the first bifurcated stent-graft for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair, the first modular system for endovascular repair of an aortic arch aneurysm and the first modular system for bilateral iliac aneurysms. In addition, Chuter performed the first endovascular repair of the following: an inflammatory aneurysm, an aorto-bronchial fistula and a thoracoabdominal aneurysm.

Chuter earned medical and postgraduate research degrees at Nottingham University Medical School in England. He completed a residency in surgery at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in New York, followed by fellowship training at the University of Rochester, N.Y. -- first in critical care, then in vascular surgery. Prior to coming to UCSF in 1996, Chuter was an assistant professor of surgery at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in New York and an associate professor of radiology at Lund University in Sweden. He is director of the Endovascular Surgery Program and a professor.
