Aaron M. Fischman, MD, is Associate Professor of Radiology and Surgery in the Division of Vascular and Interventional Radiology at The Mount Sinai Medical Center. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Dartmouth College, he completed medical school at the State University of NY (SUNY) Upstate Medical Center in 2004. After finishing residency in Diagnostic Radiology at The Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York where he also served as Chief Resident, he then went on to complete a fellowship in Vascular and Interventional Radiology.   He subsequently joined the division of Vascular and Interventional Radiology in 2010 and currently serves as the Program Director for the newly created IR residency and fellowship training program for the entire Mount Sinai Health System.

Dr. Fischman has a broad and active interest in minimally invasive treatments for venous disease including deep vein thrombosis (DVT), advanced IVC filter removal techniques, superficial varicose veins and venous portal venous hypertension including therapies such as Transjugular Intrahepatic Portosystemic Shunt (TIPS) and Balloon Occlusion Retrograde Transvenous Obliteration of Gastric Varices (BRTO). He also focuses on minimally invasive treatments for primary and metastastic liver and kidney cancer including Yttrium-90 radioembolization, chemoembolization and thermal ablative therapies including state of the art microwave and cryoablation technologies. 

At Mount Sinai, Dr. Fischman has pioneered the transradial (TR) technique for access to the arterial system from the wrist during oncologic liver interventions and uterine embolization for fibroids.  He trains physicians from around the world on this minimally invasive technique which allows for improved patient comfort, immediate ambulation, and faster discharge to home. 

Dr. Fischman is currently involved in numerous multi-center clinical trials including the BEAT Obesity Trial, a new minimally invasive procedure developed to help people lose weight without surgery and the BEST Trial comparing minimally invasive embolization to traditional TURP for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).   

Dr. Fischman has authored and co-authored numerous peer-reviewed publications and actively lectures around the world about new and innovative techniques for minimally invasive interventions.  He is a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society, the Society of Interventional Radiology, Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe, Radiologic Society of North America, American Roentgen Ray Society, Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography and the American College of Phlebology.  He is board-certified by the American Board of Radiology in Diagnostic Radiology and Vascular and Interventional Radiology.
