Kevin Carson, MD, CAQ, is a Board-Certified Vascular Surgeon and Radiologist specializing in Vascular and Interventional Radiology. Dr. Carson sees patients at Georgia Vascular Institute from two offices in Atlanta and Stockbridge, Georgia.
Dr. Carson is the co-founder of Georgia Vascular Institute. He saw a need and felt called to make a change. Growing up in Boston, Massachusetts, he witnessed firsthand the dire healthcare needs in his community. From the lack of physicians available to the challenges of access and awareness, problems were stark.
Inspired by those needs and the women in his family who battled uterine fibroids, he set his sights on a medical career. Today, Dr. Carson is committed to empowering women through advanced treatments for uterine fibroids and hemorrhoids.
He graduated from Dartmouth College and attended Temple University School of Medicine. He completed his internship at Tufts University and residency in Diagnostic Radiology at The University of Massachusetts Medical Center, followed by his fellowship in Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology at Columbia University.
With a background in software engineering, Dr. Carson works part-time in the computer industry, serving on the board of CensorMed. He is an adjunct professor at the Morehouse School of Medicine and actively lectures on Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology topics.
Upon learning of a nonsurgical breakthrough known as uterine fibroid embolization, Dr. Carson became one of the first doctors to perform the procedure in the Southern Crescent. He was named a top doctor by the staff and physicians at Southern Regional Medical Center in 2005.
Professional affiliations include the Society of Interventional Radiology, American College of Radiology, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Radiological Society of North America, and Atlanta Medical Association.
Dr. Carson continues pursuing his passion and has created a state-of-the-art facility designed specifically for women and fibroids. He strives to change lives, one patient at a time, and his patients' gratitude proves to be the most rewarding aspect of his career.
