About Thomas S Huber

Thomas S. Huber, M.D., Ph.D., is professor and chief of vascular surgery and endovascular therapy at the University of Florida College of Medicine. He also serves as vice chairman of the department of surgery, for which he has served as a faculty member for more than 17 years.

Dr. Huber earned his medical degree and doctorate in physiology at the University of Michigan, where he also completed his surgical residency and vascular fellowship training.

His clinical interests include aortic aneurysms, peripheral arterial occlusive disease and hemodialysis access.

Dr. Huber’s research focuses on improving the success rates of fistulas for hemodialysis access. Funded by the National Institutes of Health, he is leading a team of physicians, surgeons and scientists at UF who are partnering with five other institutions from across the country to study fistula outcomes. Together they are working to outline practice patterns and create surgical guidelines with the aim of increasing the number of successful fistula procedures.

He has published and presented extensively, as well as has served as a peer reviewer for numerous journals. He currently sits on the editorial board of the Journal of Vascular Surgery and the Yearbook of Surgery.

Dr. Huber is committed to educating the next generation of vascular surgeons and serves as the UF vascular surgery fellowship program director.

His awards include induction into Alpha Omega Alpha, recognition as a distinguished reviewer of the Journal of Vascular Surgery, and recipient of the Key Award for Outstanding Clinical Service, the Edward M. Copeland Faculty Award, and the Lester R. Dragstedt Physician-Scientist Award.
