Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, UCSF (University of California San Francisco)

Vascular surgeon with expertise in both minimally invasive endovascular techniques as well as open surgical interventions.

Clinical areas of expertise include open and endovascular repair of thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysms and dissections, carotid artery disease, renovascular disease, and lower extremity arterial and venous disorders.

Medical degree from the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine.

Residency in general surgery, as well as fellowships in both interventional radiology and vascular surgery at the University of California San Francisco.

Assistant professor of surgery at UCSF.

Research involves both clinical and translational research, with a special interest in the abnormal inflammatory response and kidney injury after complex endovascular aortic procedures.

An investigator on several clinical trials, including the use of endovascular stent-grafts for treatment of abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysms, the use of carotid stents for prevention of stroke, and the measurement of pressure changes in the aorta after placement of stent-grafts to treat aneurysms.




Dr. Panneton, a native of Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, Canada, received his medical degree from the University of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. He completed both his general surgery residency (1992) and his first vascular surgery fellowship (1993) at the University of Montreal. Dr. Panneton went on to complete a second vascular surgery fellowship (1994) at the Mayo Clinic and Mayo Graduate School of Medicine in Rochester, Minnesota and a third vascular surgery fellowship at the University of Glasgow, Scotland (1995). Dr. Panneton has been Board-certified in general vascular surgery since 1996. He is also a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS).

In 2004 Dr. Panneton came to Sentara Vascular Specialists from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, where he was an Associate Professor of Surgery as well as Consultant and Director of Clinical Research for the Division of Vascular Surgery. While developing a very active surgical practice at the Mayo Clinic, Dr. Panneton found time to lecture, present and publish widely on a range of open and endovascular surgery topics, including repair of thoracic aneurysms and innovative approaches to limb salvage. He brings special expertise in redo aortic surgery, complex arch vessel reconstruction and thoracic endografting.

Vascular surgeon with a special interest in the use of branched and fenestrated stent-grafts to treat aneurysms of the aorta.

Chuter designed, made and used the first bifurcated stent-graft for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair, the first modular system for endovascular repair of an aortic arch aneurysm and the first modular system for bilateral iliac aneurysms.

The first endovascular repair of the following: an inflammatory aneurysm, an aorto-bronchial fistula and a thoracoabdominal aneurysm.

Earned medical and postgraduate research degrees at Nottingham University Medical School in England.

Residency in surgery at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in New York, followed by fellowship training at the University of Rochester, N.Y. -- first in critical care, then in vascular surgery.

Prior to coming to UCSF in 1996, Chuter was an assistant professor of surgery at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in New York and an associate professor of radiology at Lund University in Sweden.
