Richard Green, MD, FACS, is known for his expertise in both open and percutaneous vascular procedures, and is now concentrating on complex open surgeries and aortic surgery. His journal and book publications focus primarily on aortic surgery, carotid surgery, and thoracic outlet surgery.

Dr. Green has longstanding experience in fostering collaboration across traditionally separate specialties in order to promote optimal care for patients with vascular disease. As the Associate Chief of the newly merged Division of Cardiac, Thoracic, and Vascular Surgery at NYP/Columbia, Dr. Green is very pleased to be shepherding the new division’s emergence as a collaborative entity.

In practice for over 40 years, Dr. Green has been named by Castle Connolly as one of the top doctors in the United States. He is a prominent member of societies and committees including the US MEDCAC Steering Committee, the Society for Vascular Surgery (numerous positions including President from 2002-2006), and others. He serves as an examiner in the Vascular Surgery Certifying Examination and he is an editorial reviewer for Circulation, Journal of the American College of Surgeons, Cardiovascular Surgery, and The Journal of Vascular Surgery. He serves on the Editorial Board of Perspectives in Vascular Surgery and Journal of Cardiovascular Surgery.
