Biography


    As Chief of Vascular Surgery, Dr. Faries is responsible for leading the clinical and academic efforts of the Ruth J. & Maxwell Hauser and Harriet & Arthur Aufses, Jr., MD Department of Surgery’s Vascular Division. Dr. Faries, who joined Mount Sinai in 2007, directs 14 vascular surgeons on the faculty, as well as medical and administrative staff.  An admired mentor, Dr. Faries also actively develops training and fellowship opportunities in vascular surgery.

    An expert in the treatment of carotid artery disease for the prevention of stroke, Dr. Faries has helped advance the practice of minimally  invasive vascular surgery, particularly the use of percutaneous techniques that can effectively improve arterial blood flow without the need for more invasive, traditional open surgery. His practice focuses on  percutaneous transluminal angioplasty for the treatment of carotid artery stenosis, renovascular hypertension, and lower extremity  ischemia, as well as endovascular treatments for thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysms.

    Both a renowned surgeon and an active researcher, Dr. Faries oversees numerous clinical trials investigating new treatments for vascular disorders. He leads a National Institutes of Health - supported  laboratory and a research team studying the root causes of aortic aneurysm, his area of expertise, and whether stem cells can treat this  condition. Dr. Faries has also studied the use of a filter that protects the brain by capturing plaque debris that comes loose during  angioplasty.


    Prior to being recruited to Mount Sinai, Dr. Faries was the Site Chief  of Vascular Surgery and Associate Professor of Surgery at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University. He also served as Chief of Endovascular Surgery for both Cornell-New York Hospital and Columbia Presbyterian Hospital from 2002 to 2007.

    Dr. Faries was pleased to return to Mount Sinai and work again with his mentor, Michael L. Marin, MD, who previously served as Chief of Vascular and is currently Chair of the Department of Surgery. Dr. Faries has received numerous awards and honors in surgery research including the society for Vascular Surgery Lifeline Award, 2003; the  Peripheral Vascular Surgery Society Educational grant, 2002; and the Society for Clinical Vascular Surgery Research Award, 2000. Dr. Faries is a prolific author having published 156 manuscripts in peer-review journals. He has traveled extensively to present his research at 194 national, international and regional meetings. He is also a member of 21 professional medical societies and has been elected to the position of officer in four. He serves on the editorial staff of several leading medical journals, including on the editorial board of the Journal of Vascular Surgery.

    After earning his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania Medical School, Dr. Faries completed residency in general surgery at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center. He completed a fellowship in vascular surgery at the Harvard Medical School/Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. He initiated his  professional practice at Mount Sinai in 2000. Since joining Mount Sinai, Dr. Faries has engaged in several clinical trials and research projects.  In addition, he participated in a National Institutes of Health Clinical Research Training Program from 2002 to 2004.
