Overview
Dr. Mohamad A. Hussain, MD, PhD, FRCSC, RPVI is a Vascular and Endovascular Surgeon-Scientist at Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA. He is also a Junior Core Faculty at the Centre for Surgery and Public Health.

He obtained his medical degree from the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada (2012). He completed a vascular surgery residency and PhD in clinical epidemiology and health services research through the Surgeon Scientist Training Program at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Canada (2020). He also completed a resident research internship at the New England Journal of Medicine (2016) and a cardiovascular medicine research fellowship at the Brigham (2017).

Dr. Hussain's research interests include the study of vascular diseases using observational epidemiology, health services research, prospective clinical trials, and knowledge translation. He has authored or co-authored more than 50 peer reviewed manuscripts and more than 70 research presentations or published abstracts. His clinical practice is focused on vascular and endovascular surgery, with a special interest in thoracic outlet syndrome surgery.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
