Clinical Specialties

Dr. Matsumura is certified by the American Board of Surgery, with a certificate of added qualifications in vascular surgery. He specializes in less-invasive endovascular techniques for the treatment of vascular diseases. His expertise includes treatments for aortic aneurysms, carotid disease, aortic dissection, peripheral arterial disease and other vascular disorders.

Research Interests

Dr. Matsumura’s research is devoted to the development and testing of novel devices and techniques for the treatment of vascular diseases, including stents and stent-grafts for the repair of aortic and thoracic aneurysms. He is the national principal investigator on a number of multi-institutional clinical trials evaluating investigational devices. In addition, he is renowned for extensive training programs that allow other vascular specialists to learn new endovascular techniques for treating patients in their own practices.
