To help meet the critical need for vascular specialists in the Lowcountry, Beaufort Memorial has added two more vascular surgeons to its medical staff. Drs. Ravikumar Veeraswamy and Mathew Wooster have joined board-certified vascular surgeon Dr. Chad Tober and physician assistant Annsley Troxell, as well as the four general surgeons currently practicing with Beaufort Memorial Surgical Specialists.
Both physicians are on the faculty at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) and treat the entire spectrum of vascular diseases and conditions, including abdominal aortic aneurysm, carotid artery disease, peripheral arterial disease, deep vein thrombosis and varicose veins.
Raised in Irmo, Dr. Veeraswamy earned both his undergraduate and medical degrees from Johns Hopkins University. He completed his residency and fellowship at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri, and an additional fellowship at Washington University.
A highly experienced surgeon who is board-certified in both vascular and general surgery, Dr. Veeraswamy is professor and chief of vascular surgery at MUSC and serves as director of its residency program. Prior to joining MUSC, he was an associate professor of surgery at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, and on the clinical staff at Emory University Hospital and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta for more than a decade.
A South Carolina native, Dr. Wooster earned his B.S. in Biology at Duke University and his medical degree at MUSC. He completed his residency at the University of South Florida and joined the MUSC medical and teaching staff as assistant professor in 2017.
Board-certified in vascular surgery, Dr. Wooster is also the director of the vascular surgery clerkship at MUSC, where he oversees medical students during their surgical rotations.
