Dr Lumsden is a graduate of University of Edinburgh, Scotland. He completeted his general and vascular surgery training at Emory University in Atlanta, where he joined the faculty and rose to become chief of the division of vascular surgery. Moving to Houston in 2002, he become the chief of the division of vascular surgery, following in the footsteps of Dr Michael E DeBakey. At Baylor a very robust endovascular and research program was developed focusing on minimally invasive vascular surgery. Dr Lumsden has over 260 publications, 40 book chapters, one book and has an active NIG grant examining use of lipid modication on outcomes of lower extremity intervention.
