Dr. Aaron Rohr completed a fellowship in Vascular and Interventional Radiology at Stanford University prior to completing his radiology residency at University of Kansas Medical Center. He earned his medical degree from the University of Kansas School of Medicine and a Masters of Science in biomedical sciences from Kansas City University. He has training and expertise that encompasses all facets of vascular and interventional radiology. He has an interest in venous disease, complex IVC filter retrieval, interventional oncology and prostate artery embolization. He believes that true patient care results from accurate disease identification, appropriate clinical decisions and an organized plan between the patient and physician. To provide top-notch patient care using minimally invasive procedures, a strong background in research and new technology is essential. This helps to overcome the vast differences in symptoms that make every patient unique. That is a core value he takes pride in and the reason he immerses himself in various research and innovative roles throughout the interventional radiology community. In addition, he is a member of the Society of Interventional Radiology, American College of Radiology, Radiological Society of North America, Radiology Leadership Institute, American Roentgen Ray Society, Society of Vascular Medicine, Greater Kansas City Radiological Society and American Medical Association. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family, friends, and dog. Traveling, skiing, sports and lake adventures are a few things he looks forward to outside of work.
