C.J. Lee, MD to Join the Division of Vascular Surgery

On behalf of Dr. Gary Seabrook and the Division of Vascular Surgery, it is with great pride and excitement that we report the recruitment of C.J. Lee, MD to the faculty of the Department of Surgery (Division of Vascular Surgery). C.J. is a graduate of the University of Michigan and the University of Michigan Medical School. He stayed in Ann Arbor to complete his surgical training and following his residency at the University of Michigan, he joined Northwestern University in their Vascular Fellowship Program. He is currently in the final year of his vascular surgery fellowship and will join us this summer. While at the University of Michigan he received virtually every honor possible including AOA and the Gardner Child Award for Excellence in Surgery. As a surgical resident he received the Young Investigator Award and also the Resident Research Prize from the Society of University Surgeons. He has received the Teaching Award from both the University of Michigan (as a resident) and Northwestern University (as a fellow). C.J. has published 12 peer-reviewed manuscripts and an additional 12 book chapters. During his residency he spent two years in the laboratory of Diane Simeone studying the molecular biology of pancreatic cancer. For some reason we were unable to keep him in the pancreatic cancer field and like many smart surgeons, he found his chosen career path in vascular surgery.

C.J. was one of the most highly recruited finishing fellows in vascular surgery in the United States and it is a credit to Dr. Seabrook and the storied tradition of excellence in vascular surgery at MCW that he and his wife, Ziehyn Huh, have chosen to move to Milwaukee and join our faculty. C.J. and his wife, Ziehyn Huh, have two children, Won Lee and Joonie Lee and we look forward to giving them a warm welcome this summer. If you would like to communicate with C.J. prior to his arrival, his email is cheongl@gmail.com; please share with him our warm welcome and sincere congratulations on the completion of his training.
