Alexandra Yannoutsos, MD, PhD

I am a vascular doctor working in the department of vascular medicine of Groupe Hospitalier Paris Saint-Joseph. My clinical expertise focuses on the management of various vascular conditions in a multidisciplinary team approach. Clinical areas of expertise include atherosclerotic peripheral artery disease, chronic limb ischemia, venous thromboembolic disease, lymphedema, microcirculatory disorders and lower limb ulcers management.
I am involved in the clinical research focusing on observational and prognostic studies in patients with atherosclerosis.
