She completed a fellowship in vascular surgery at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center. Dr. Kirkwood has an interest in all areas of vascular surgery. Her research interests include radiation dose control in complex endovascular cases, the natural history and potential enlargement of iliac artery aneurysms following endovascular aneurysms following endovascular aneurysm repair for concomitant AAA, the feasibility and safety of simultaneous thoracic and abdominal endovascular aortic repair in multilevel aortic disease, and functional outcomes of limb revascularization for peripheral artery disease using heparin-coated conduits. Her clinical focus includes traditional open and endovascular abdominal and thoracic aortic surgery, carotid disease including conventional carotid endarterectomy, and carotid stenting. She also has an interest in endovascular therapies and lower extremity bypass focused on peripheral arterial disease and limb salvage.
