Dr. Warren J. Gasper received his medical degree at the University of Maryland. He then completed a general surgery residency and vascular surgery fellowship at the University of California San Francisco. Following residency, he completed a one year research fellowship in vascular physiology and translational research at the University of California San Francisco.

Dr. Gasper's clinical interests include diseases of the aorta and its major branches, aneurysms and peripheral artery disease. Dr Gasper's research has been focused on translational projects involving vascular physiology and venous remodeling after arteriovenous fistula and lower extremity bypass surgeries. He also been active in research involving pharmacologic therapies to reduce or prevent restenosis and has been involved in pre-clinical studies as well as clinical trials using a novel endovascular approach to deliver therapy to the artery adventitia.
