THE STORY:

Thank you for visiting my 2017 Boston Marathon fundraising page.

This year I am honored to be running in celebration of Dr. Michael Davidson, and in support of the fellowship which has been established in his name. Dr Davidson's compassion and willingness to take on the most difficult cases serves as an inspiration to us all. 

In light of the recent election and the exposure of a politically, racially and socially divided America, it is more important than ever for us to embrace the principles that Dr. Davidson embodied: Take care of those who need our help. Be kind. Work hard to make this world a better place. 

By donating to the Michael J. Davidson, MD Endovascular Fellowship, you will be supporting not only the next generation of physicians, but also the patients and families who will benefit from their training.

Thank you in advance for your encouragement and support. 

 

About the Michael J. Davidson, MD Endovascular Fellowship

Michael J. Davidson, MD, was the Director of Endovascular Cardiac Surgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He graduated from Yale University School of Medicine in 1996 and completed his postgraduate training at Duke University Medical Center and BWH. Dr. Davidson took the unusual route of training as both a cardiovascular surgeon and an interventional cardiologist. While at the Brigham, he and his colleagues pushed the adoption of new, less invasive ways to repair damaged aortic valves. These “hybrid” programs used techniques from surgery and interventional cardiology to replace heart valves by inserting them through catheters rather than incisions. Dr. Davidson was part of the remarkable team that performed the hospital’s first tricuspid “valve-in-valve” procedure, and he was involved in establishing BWH’s Cardiac Hybrid Operating Room, one of the most advanced operating rooms in the country.

Dr. Davidson’s colleagues recall him as a “visionary” physician who bridged disciplines to pioneer a new form of surgery, and always took time to understand his patients and do what was best for them. He is remembered as an exceptionally talented surgeon, brilliant thinker, consummate caregiver, and perhaps most of all, as a man who deeply cared for his family, his patients and his colleagues. His legacy of kindness, compassionate care, vision, and humanism lives on in the Brigham community and beyond.
