Isibor Arhuidese, MD, MPH

Assistant Professor of Surgery (Vascular), of Epidemiology (Chronic Diseases), and of Biomedical Informatics and Data Science



Dr. Arhuidese is a vascular and endovascular surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Surgery. He is highly specialized in the use of medical, endovascular and open surgical therapies for the treatment of vascular diseases. He holds concurrent appointments in the Department of Surgery in the Yale School of Medicine, Department of Chronic Disease Epidemiology in Yale School of Public Health, and in the Section of Biomedical Informatics and Data Science in the Yale School of Medicine.

His clinical interests include aortic aneurysms and dissections, peripheral arterial disease, carotid disease, creation and maintenance of durable access for hemodialysis, renal and mesenteric ischemia, thoracic outlet syndrome as well as the spectrum of venous diseases. He promotes communication strategies that facilitate shared decision making by patients, their families and the health team.

Dr. Arhuidese pays meticulous attention to detail to ensure that patients have a safe and positive experience in the pre-, intra- and post- operative/procedural periods. He applies current research evidence in determining: if and when patients require surgery/procedures; and the surgery/procedure that best fits each patient based on their unique characteristics. He promotes disease prevention strategies that help patients avoid surgical procedures if possible.

Dr. Arhuidese obtained his medical degree from the University of Benin in Nigeria. He served as Speaker of Congress and subsequently President of the Medical Students Association. He completed a Master’s in Public Health with a focus in Epidemiology & Biostatistics at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health.

He completed Vascular & Endovascular Surgery Residency at the University of South Florida where he was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society and awarded the Larey C. Carey Best Resident Research Award twice!

His research is focused on understanding how pre- and peri-operative patient, provider and system based factors affect short and long term outcomes after vascular interventions. His research has been presented at numerous local, regional and national meetings; and published in national and international journals. He collaborates with experts across disciplines in medicine, public health, engineering, computer science and others to identify and promote novel solutions to vascular problems at individual and population levels.
