Brent Haverstock, D.P.M., F.A.C.F.A.S., will join the division as the podiatry director of this program, while Graeme McFarland, M.D., a 2016 graduate of UAB’s General Surgery Residency and the vascular surgery fellowship at Stanford University, will join Haverstock in the program and the division as an assistant professor.

The UAB Limb Preservation Program represents a multidisciplinary collaboration involving numerous fields of study, including vascular surgery, podiatry and wound care. This team will focus on lower extremity limb preservation, diabetic foot care and complex wound management.

"Successful limb preservation requires a concerted multi-disciplinary effort, with vascular surgery and podiatry being central,” Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy Director Adam Beck, M.D., said. “Many other areas of expertise are required as well, but adequate blood flow and proper attention to the biomechanics of the foot are essential. Drs. Haverstock and McFarland will complete our world-class multidisciplinary limb preservation team."

Additionally, the Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy welcomes another new faculty member this summer, Bin Ren, M.D., Ph.D., F.A.H.A. Ren is an accomplished vascular biologist and comes to UAB from the Medical College of Wisconsin where he worked as an assistant professor of medicine in the Division of Hematology and Oncology. He brings with him ongoing research and a longstanding interest in angiogenesis and will further expand the comprehensive basic, translational and clinical research program in the Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy.
