Biography

Matthew P. Sweet, M.D., M.S., is a vascular surgeon at UW Medical Center and a UW Associate Professor of Surgery. He completed his general surgery residency at UC San Francisco and then his vascular surgery fellowship at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. 

Dr. Sweet has a particular interest in the treatment of patients with complex thoracic aortic pathology, including thoraco-abdominal and aortic arch aneurysms. He runs a Physician Sponsored Investigational Device Exemption study utilizing custom made branched and fenestrated stent grafts for the endovascular treatment of thoraco-abdominal aneurysms. He is also the site lead investigator for industry sponsored clinical trials of branched endografts designed for treatment of both thoraco-abdominal and aortic arch aneurysms. In addition to these endovascular treatment options, Dr. Sweet performs open repair of thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysms. 

In addition to the clinical trials described above, Dr. Sweet’s research interests include the morphology and natural history of thoraco-abdominal aneurysms, as well as in improving treatment decision making for these high risk aortic conditions.
