Candice N. Thompson, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Surgery - General Surgery
Masters Student in Epidemiology and Clinical Research, admitted Autumn 2023
BioDr. Thompson is a fellowship-trained breast surgeon, specializing in breast-conserving (lumpectomy) and mastectomy surgeries. She is an assistant professor with the Stanford School of Medicine Department of Surgery.
Her practice focuses on providing expert care for breast cancer patients using innovative approaches to breast tissue conservation, including nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM). Dr. Thompson is actively involved in breast oncology research and publications. Her studies include two-stage NSM, ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) recurrence, arteriovenous malformation (AVM) of the breast, perioperative changes to the nipple areola, and augmented reality using Microsoft HoloLens. Dr. Thompson has also been involved in research surrounding Rates of Immediate Breast Reconstruction Post Mastectomy: A Trend Analysis Across Race/Ethnicity and NSM after radiation.
Dr. Thompson is a member of the American College of Surgeons (ACS), American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBrS), Society of Surgical Oncology (SSO), Society of Black Academic Surgeons (SBAS), Association of Women Surgeons (AWS), National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®), and American Medical Association (AMA).
Kenneth Tran, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Surgery - Vascular Surgery
BioDr. Tran is a vascular surgeon in the Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Division at Stanford Health Care. He is also a clinical assistant professor of surgery at the Stanford University School of Medicine.
Dr. Tran graduated with high honors from the University of Virginia School of Engineering in 2011 and earned his medical degree from Stanford University School of Medicine in 2016. He completed his surgical training at Stanford University School of Medicine, culminating in his completion of the Vascular Surgery Integrated Residency at Stanford in 2023. During his residency, Dr. Tran completed a two-year NIH-funded fellowship under the mentorship of Dr. Alison Marsden. This fellowship focused on using computer simulations of blood flow to enhance the treatment of vascular diseases.
Dr. Tran's research pursuits center on expanding the use of computational simulation techniques to understand changes in blood flow after different vascular treatments. He also has a special interest in using customized grafts to repair complex aortic conditions. Dr. Tran studies blood flow and clinical outcomes after treatment with these customized aortic grafts.
He has published his work in numerous prestigious peer-reviewed journals, including the Journal of Vascular Surgery, JAMA Surgery, and the European Journal of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery. He has presented at the podium at numerous national and international conferences. Dr. Tran has also received multiple research awards, including the Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Society’s Medtronic Resident Research Award, the best resident presentation at the Swiss Society for Vascular Diseases, and the Young Researcher Prize at the European Symposium on Vascular Biomaterials. He also co-authored a chapter in the book Complications in Endovascular Surgery.
Dr. Tran’s clinical interests include the entire spectrum of vascular surgery, including but not limited to:
• Traditional and minimally invasive strategies for aortic aneurysm repair
• Traditional, minimally invasive, and hybrid methods for managing peripheral vascular disease
• Management of cerebrovascular disease, including carotid angioplasty/stenting, transcarotid artery revascularization (TCAR), and conventional carotid surgery
• Comprehensive dialysis access creation
• Treatment of venous reflux
