Dr. Makhoul joined SAR in the summer of 2000 after serving as Associate Professor and Chairman of the Division of Vascular Surgery at the Medical College of Virginia since 1996. He has had a distinguished career in surgery dating back to his medical school at the University of Chicago, a surgical residency at Duke University, and a fellowship in vascular surgery at the UCLA School of Medicine.
During his academic tenure, Ray received 14 grants for his research efforts from national sponsors such as the National Institutes of Health and the US Public Health Service, totalling nearly 900,000 dollars for basic science and clinical investigation. He has presented at countless national meetings and as far away as Japan. He is also the author of over 60 peer-reviewed journal publications, 11 book chapters, an atlas of surgery, and 30 journal abstracts, and has even taken time to serve as a mentor to Virginia high school students at the Governor's School.
Ray is interested in the full spectrum of general and vascular surgery, and has initiated development of a venous disorders clinic for SAR, which will provide testing and treatment for varicose veins and venous ulcers.
