    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Allan M. Conway is a vascular surgeon caring for patients with complex abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysms (abnormal bulges in the body's largest artery that can rupture). He specializes in complex limb salvage (surgical techniques designed to avoid amputation) for patients with limb-threatening carotid artery or peripheral artery disease. He is also experienced in diagnosing and treating vascular malformations (blood vessel abnormalities).

    Conway is active in surgical education and research to improve patient care. He has led trials on the endovascular management of peripheral artery disease, as well as on using stent grafts to treat thoracic aortic aneurysms.

    Conway earned his medical degree from the School of Medical Sciences at the University of Manchester in England. He was a surgical resident at St. George's Hospital, and Guy's Hospital and St. Thomas' Hospital in London. He completed a residency in vascular surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital, where he also served as chief resident. Before coming to UCSF, he was a vascular surgeon and associate professor at Lenox Hill Hospital for 10 years, also serving as director of its vascular surgery residency program.

    Conway is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a member of many professional organizations, including the Royal College of Surgeons of England, Society for Vascular Surgery, Society for Clinical Vascular Surgery, and Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Society. He is on the editorial board of the Annals of Vascular Surgery and an assistant editor for the Journal of Endovascular Therapy. He has worked with the National Board of Medical Examiners, United States Medical Licensing Examination, and Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. He has authored numerous scholarly and professional publications, written book chapters, and presented his work both nationally and internationally.
