Rodney White, MD

Investigator, LA BioMed


Research Description

• To perform state-of-the-art aortic endograft research including bench top testing and early patient feasibility evaluation
• To perform long-term surveillance of patients treated with endografts to identify failure modes
• To develop auxiliary technologies used in endograft procedures, i.e., imaging, devices etc. and enable implementation & training for these procedures.
