About Dr. Duwayri

Since joining the Department of Surgery of the Emory University School of Medicine in 2011, Dr. Duwayri has been heavily involved with developing Emory's use of customized fenestrated aortic endografts for treating juxtarenal aortic aneurysms. In 2012, he and Dr. Ravi Veeraswamy successfully implanted Georgia's first FDA-approved fenestrated aortic endograft as a minimally invasive treatment for patients with complex abdominal aortic aneurysms. Dr. Duwayri has continued to perform the procedure on appropriate patients referred from Georgia and neighboring states.

In 2015, Dr. Duwayri became the principal investigator of the Emory site in a multi-center trial to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of what could be the next generation of fenestrated graft, the Zenith® p-Branch™ device for the treatment of pararenal aortic aneurysms. Unlike the current FDA-approved graft, the Zenith p-Branch device does not need to be customized for the patient. Instead, it has two distinct designs that feature different locations for the pivoting renal windows, allowing it to fit more patients without delaying treatment. It can also treat aneurysms above the level of the renal arteries, which the current graft cannot.

Dr. Duwayri earned his MD from the University of Jordan School of Medicine, Amman, Jordan, did his internship at Indiana University, and completed his general surgery residency at the University of Toledo. He joined our faculty after completing his vascular surgery fellowship at Washington University in Saint Louis. He specializes in endoluminal and open vascular surgery, with his primary areas of clinical interest being carotid stenosis, abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysms, aortoiliac occlusive disease, renal arterial stenosis, thoracic outlet syndrome, dialysis access, peripheral arterial disease, and venous disease. His current research is focusing on outcomes in vascular surgery, while his prior investigations concentrated on exploring cell culture techniques for in-vitro expansion of human mesenchymal stem cell populations and overcoming the limitations of senescence of stem cell populations.
