Carpenter, MD, Chairman and Chief of the Department of Surgery and Vice President of Perioperative Services at Cooper University Health Care, has opened a new office located at 110 Marter Avenue, Building 500, Suite 503 Moorestown, NJ.
A Moorestown resident, Dr. Carpenter is a distinguished vascular surgeon and international researcher.
Dr. Carpenter joined Cooper in 2008 as Chief of the Department of Surgery. He has dedicated his entire career to innovating the field of vascular and endovascular surgery and continues to do so by his commitment to research and education. His special interests include abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysms, carotid arterial disease, peripheral vascular disease and endovascular surgery. Dr. Carpenter serves or has served on the editorial boards of the Journal of Vascular Surgery, Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, the Journal of Vascular and Endovascular Therapy, Vascular and several other journals. Dr. Carpenter is well published in his field with more than 250 papers.
In January 2014, vascular surgeons at Cooper were the first in North America to treat abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) with a new generation sealing system when they implanted the first, investigational Nellix® EVAS graft from Endologix as part of a global, multi-center clinical trial.
Dr. Carpenter serves as the study’s Global Principal Investigator. “Nellix represents the first meaningful advancement in abdominal aortic aneurysm repair since endovascular grafts were introduced in the late 1990s,” said Dr. Carpenter. “This is ground-breaking treatment that will help many patients and dramatically change how we treat abdominal aortic aneurysms. I look forward to growing my new Moorestown office practice and bringing these innovative treatments to my patients.”
Recently, the 30-day results of the Nellix IDE pivotal study were published in the Journal of Vascular Surgery. The results showed that in selected patients, the perioperative outcomes were encouraging, achieving high procedural success with very low endoleak rate, morbidity and mortality.
U.S. News & World Report’s “Top Doctors” rankings place Dr. Carpenter in the top 1 percent of vascular and endovascular surgeons nationwide for 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. In 2015, Dr. Carpenter received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Delaware Valley Vascular Society.
