Dr. Naren Gupta completed his surgical internship and earned a PhD (with Distinction) in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Medical College of Georgia. He completed his general surgical residency at the University of Virginia, and went on to advanced training in vascular surgery and endovascular therapy at Emory University. His research in antibiotics usage to prevent infections after surgery, the role of nutrition in disease, and stroke prevention by carotid surgery and stenting won national awards and is widely published. He is board certified in both general and vascular surgery.

After completing his training, Dr. Gupta joined the faculty of the Brigham and Women’s Hospital at VA Boston and was an Assistant Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School for 6 years and now Adjunct Instructor of Surgery at Boston University School of Medicine. His expertise in the advanced use of stents and minimally invasive interventional techniques in the treatment of aneurysms, carotid disease, venous disease, blood clots and PAD significantly advanced the vascular surgery care of our nation’s veterans. Dr. Gupta’s innovative, patient-centered multi-disciplinary approach to reducing stroke was awarded the prestigious Young Clinician’s Award by CIMIT, a consortium of Harvard, MIT and the US Department of Defense.

Dr. Gupta has worked with FEMA, the Department of Homeland Security and the White House Medical Unit to provide surgical care during the G-8 Summit and disaster relief services after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. During Operation Enduring Freedom, he volunteered his services as a Distinguished Visiting Surgeon at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, Germany to care for acutely injured US and NATO warfighters flown in from Afghanistan and Iraq.

Dr. Gupta believes that surgeons have a duty to serve their patients with heartfelt empathy. His greatest honor was to receive the Golden Heart Award for outstanding compassion in patient care.

Dr. Gupta brings a combination of cutting edge surgical expertise and empathetic, patient-centered service.
