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 aortal 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-value” 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.
