Assistant Professor of Surgery

Dr. Kim is an Assistant Professor of Surgery and Radiology, for the Division of Vascular Surgery at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. He earned his Bachelor of Arts in Biology and Economics from New York University. He continued at New York University, where he earned his Doctor of Medicine in 2008. Upon completion of medical school, Dr. Kim was accepted into the first ACGME accredited Vascular Surgery 0+5 Integrated Residency Program Class at the Icahn School of Medicine, at Mount Sinai. Dr. Kim's research interests include endovascular repair of arterial lesions. In his keynote speech, he argued for the use of minimally invasive procedures for treatment of arterial disease as opposed to open bypass. He has also been heavily involved in the research of venous disease with mechanical occlusion chemically assisted procedures. In his latest abstract, "Mechano-Chemical Ablation as an Alternative to Venous Ulcer Healing Compared with Thermal Ablation," Dr. Kim demonstrates that mechano-chemical ablation (MOCA) is a more advanced and effective form of treatment for chronic venous ulcers, compared to the standard thermal ablation treatment. Dr. Kim’s clinical interests span all areas of vascular disease and surgery. Dr. Kim is skilled in venous closure procedures including Radiofrequency Ablations, Clarivein, and Venaseal. In particular he is interested in the care of patients with varicose veins, chronic venous insufficiency, and wound care. He also treat many patients for carotid artery disease and abdominal aortic aneurysms. He currently treats patients at five locations across Manhattan and Queens.
