Dr. Shaheen specializes in complex surgical management of a broad mixture of vascular surgical conditions including: open and endovascular aortic aneurysm repair, carotid artery endarterectomy and stenting, surgical bypass and endovascular artery stenting for peripheral artery disease. Full service traditional vascular surgical interventions are offered or in combination with minimally invasive approaches when appropriate. He is a Board Certified Vascular Surgeon and General Surgeon, with additional certifications from the American Board of Vascular Medicine, and the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine. He is also a coveted Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS), a Registered Physician in Vascular (ultrasound) Interpretation (RPVI), and a Registered Phlebolgy Sonogropher (RPhS). Dr. Shaheen completed his Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Fellowship at the renowned Northwestern University Vascular Surgery training program with mentorship from Drs. Yao, Pearce, Matsumura, Eskandari, and Kibbe in 2004, after first completing his General Surgery residency at Stanford University. He initially began practice in Monterey where he quickly grew his practice incorporating traditional surgical procedures often in combination with innovative minimally invasive procedures. Although he continues to serve the Monterey community, he expanded by accepting a recruitment from El Camino Hospital in Mountain View in late 2006 to fill a strong community need for a surgeon with his training and experience. In Mountain View, he has had the good fortune to gain the trust of patients and colleagues and has grown quickly to offer a full service vascular surgical practice. Given his high spirit of collaboration, he welcomes collaborative efforts with other surgeons and interventionists in order to offer patients innovative hybrid procedures that are not as frequently performed at other institutions. During his time at El Camino Hospital, he has served on the Steering Committee for the Woman's Hospital, and is the current Chair of the Ethics Committee. He also currently serves on the Santa Clara County Medical Association's Ethics Committee, and the Society for Vascular Surgery's Conflicts of Interest Committee.
