About Salvatore T Scali

Salvatore T. Scali, MD, FACS, DFSVS, RPVI, is a professor of surgery in the division of vascular surgery and endovascular therapy at the University of Florida College of Medicine. He is also medical director of the UF Health/Shands non-invasive vascular lab and program director of the UF vascular surgery fellowship. Dr. Scali earned his medical degree from Georgetown University, followed by his general surgery residency at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. During his residency, he also completed a vascular surgery biology research fellowship within the Harvard-Longwood Vascular Research Program. Subsequently, he completed a clinical vascular surgery fellowship at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, NH.  Dr. Scali’s clinical practice is primarily based at the Malcolm Randall VA Medical Center; however, he provides call coverage at the University hospital. He is interested in a variety of clinical topics in modern vascular practice, including infrainguinal arterial reconstruction, carotid stenting and complex aneurysm disease.  His research interests include advanced endovascular therapies for thoracic and aortic pathologies, open and endovascular therapies for renal, mesenteric, carotid and peripheral arterial occlusive disease, as well as comparative effectiveness outcomes research and quality improvement initiatives. His basic and translational research efforts focus on elucidating the biologic mechanisms responsible for hand dysfunction after hemodialysis access placement, as well as understanding biologic signatures of frailty after open aortic surgery. He is board-certified in general surgery and vascular surgery by the American Board of Surgery.
