Biography

Dr. Kalish is widely recognized for his clinical research in endovascular and open vascular interventions, which has significantly improved the quality and effectiveness of ultrasound-guided access during peripheral vascular intervention. As Director of Endovascular Surgery and Associate Chief Medical Information officer at BMC, he developed and led the hospital’s Inferior Vena Cava Filter Retrieval Taskforce and presented the results at national meetings. In 2014 Dr. Kalish won the Society for Vascular Surgery’s E.J. Wylie Traveling Fellowship for his leadership in improving care for the survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing. He adopted advaces observed at visits to military centers to his civilian practice and formed a multi-disciplinary team (STRONG) to benefit amputee patients at BMC. Dr. Kalish has been an excellent teacher and mentor to medical and physician assistant students, residents and fellows in vascular surgery, as well as junior faculty, not only improving their surgical skills but also encouraging clinical research initiatives.
