    Dr. Adam Oskowitz is a vascular surgeon with extensive experience in evaluating and caring for patients in the clinic and during hospitalization. He plans and performs both basic and complex surgeries to address vascular disease.

    In research, Oskowitz is interested in using stem cells to develop novel treatments for aortic aneurysms.

    Oskowitz earned a master's degree in public health from Dartmouth College. He earned his medical and doctoral degrees at Tulane University. He completed his general surgery residency at the University of California, Los Angeles, where he served as chief resident. He also completed a fellowship in vascular surgery at UCLA.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
