Dr. Brewster's clinical practice is focused on general vascular surgery with a clinical research interest in the use of ultrasound to diagnose and treat vascular disease, the patient and surgeon perspective in surgical decision-making, selection and outcomes of carotid artery stenosis therapy, and optimal therapy for limb salvage. His lab is investigating the role of arterial stiffness in arterial remodeling after interventions and the regenerative opportunities of biologic therapies in patients with cardiovascular disease.

Through his joint affiliations with the Atlanta Clinical and Translational Science Institute, Emory and the Georgia Institute of Technology's Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering, and GA Tech's Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience, Dr. Brewster has access to an exceptional pool of collaborators.

Dr. Brewster's current studies include an NIH-NHLBI funded examination of the molecular mechanisms involved in arterial stiffening through blood flow and arterial wall changes, and a DoD funded study of Raman spectroscopy and 3D imaging as decision support tools in the assessment of neuronal fibrosis and sarcopenia in veterans and combat casualty amputees.
