Claiming South Carolina as home since his youth, it would seem all roads bring Dr. Mathew Wooster back to the charming Lowcountry. Leaving home originally for college at Duke University he returned briefly to complete medical school at MUSC, venturing off again to the University of South Florida where he completed his integrated vascular surgery residency. He now returns to work alongside the very mentors who introduced him to vascular surgery while a medical student at MUSC.
Throughout his training, Dr. Wooster has been involved in complex endovascular aortic repair research, as well as participating routinely in the areas of prosthetic graft infections, multi-time redo peripheral bypasses, endovascular limb salvage, and last chance dialysis access creation. In addition to clinical pursuits, Dr. Wooster has been rigorously involved in education serving as a resident member of multiple sub-committees with the Association of Program Directors of Vascular Surgery.
Dr. Wooster’s clinical interests and training include the breadth of vascular surgical techniques with a special passion for aortic pathology, cerebrovascular disease, and lower extremity limb salvage. Academically, he looks forward to bringing the strong simulation curriculum he was part of in residency to MUSC, improving knowledge about the field among the general public through community outreach, and contributing to the broadening of clinical trial enrollment at the medical university to be able to offer patients access to cutting edge technologic advances.
