Dr. Veith graduated from Cornell University Medical School with Honors before completing an internship at Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital in New York and his surgical residency training at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Dr. Veith achieved success with his pioneering work in experimental and clinical lung transplantation. In the 1970s and 1980s, Dr. Veith's attention turned toward Vascular Surgery with an emphasis on lower extremity revascularization procedures. He and his colleagues were the first to advocate an aggressive approach to saving limbs threatened by arteriosclerosis and gangrene when most patients with this problem were being treated by a major amputation.
Dr. Veith held positions as Chief of Vascular Surgery and Interim Chairman of Surgery at Montefiore Medical Center and Albert Einstein College of Medicine for many years. In the last five, he was The William J. Von Liebig Chair in Vascular Surgery and the Vice Chairman of the Department of Surgery. Throughout his career he has received numerous awards and honors as a leader, outstanding teacher and innovator in Vascular Surgery.
He is now Professor of Surgery and The William J. von Liebig Chair in Vascular Surgery at the Cleveland Clinic and Professor of Surgery at New York University Medical Center. As he has done for many years, Dr. Veith also chairs the largest Vascular Surgery meeting, the VEITHsymposium, held annually in New York City.
