Dr. Obi J. Imegwu joined Dr. Lee in practice after completing his vascular fellowship in 2001. His primary clinical interests include minimally invasive general surgery (laparoscopic and robotic hernia repair, as well as stomach, gallbladder, small intestinal and colon surgeries) in addition to open and minimally invasive vascular surgeries (carotid, aortic, peripheral vascular, and vein surgeries).

Dr. Imegwu has four journal publications relating to wound healing research conducted during his general surgery training and a 5th publication based on molecular research completed during his vascular surgery training. He is co-author in a clinical publication relating to laparoscopic splenectomy, and he has co-authored a chapter in a surgical nutrition and metabolism text.
