A member of the Brown faculty since 1991, Robert B. Patterson, MD, FACS, RVT is a vascular surgeon who completed his residency in General Surgery at the Naval Regional Medical Center Portsmouth, and a clinical and research fellowship in Vascular Surgery at the University of Cincinnati. He has published extensively on exercise therapy for claudication, as well as multiple basic science and clinical papers on all aspects of vascular disease. He is a member of numerous regional and national surgical societies, is a Distinguished Fellow of the Society for Vascular Surgery and is a Past- President of the New England Society for Vascular Surgery. He is on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Vascular Surgery. He is in the clinical practice of vascular surgery, and provides consultative services in vascular ultrasound, as well as ongoing research projects evaluating sequential compression devices for prevention of deep venous thrombosis.
