With over twenty years of experience running his own private practices, Dr. Daniel Gorin, founding partner of The Vascular Care Group and board member of Mangrove Management Partners, is well-versed in what it takes to make a practice successful. For the last eight years, he has been the lead vascular surgeon at The Vascular Care Group’s Hyannis location, one of the first outpatient endovascular care centers in Massachusetts. His center also serves as a key location for The Vascular Care Group, training new staff and serving as a support system for TVCG’s other locations.

“The Vascular Care Group has established a model that delivers high-level care to patients in the communities where they live, rather than asking the patient to travel to a larger city or healthcare hub,” said Dr. Welch. “I firmly believe that we can lower the barrier to quality care and improve the patient experience with a commitment to outpatient care in our communities. It is very exciting to join a like-minded organization that is a leader in outpatient vascular care in Massachusetts.”

Prior to joining The Vascular Care Group, Dr. Welch worked as a vascular surgeon at Lahey Clinic in Burlington, Mass. for 24 years. He developed an international reputation for excellence while operating in hospitals across the globe, including U.S. Naval Hospitals in Groton, Conn., Portsmouth, Va and Keflavik, Iceland. He also spent time at the Tufts-New England Medical Center before moving to the Lahey Clinic.

“By increasing access to highly skilled physicians, such as Dr. Welch, our team is helping to improve the care paradigm on Cape Cod,” said Daniel R. Gorin, MD, RVT, FACS, a founding partner at TVCG. “I look forward to working with him and continuing our mission to innovate the delivery of vascular care on a community level.”

Dr. Welch was named an American Venous Forum Distinguished Fellow and received the Cornelius Sedgwick Mentor Award for Surgery Chief Residents. He is a member of several professional societies, including American College of Surgeons, Society for Vascular Surgery, and the New England Society for Vascular Surgery, and has served as a Professor of Surgery at Tufts University School of Medicine and President of the American Venous Forum. Dr. Welch has also authored 11 book chapters and more than 30 articles.
