Clinical Interests

Dr. Geraghty maintains a broad-based clinical practice, with a particular focus on complex limb salvage interventions for lower extremity arterial occlusive disease, aneurysms and occlusive disease of the aorta and other major arteries, carotid disease, venous disease, and hemodialysis access. In conjunction with his WUSM colleagues, Dr. Geraghty has worked to establish the first multidisciplinary limb salvage center in the St. Louis region, and serves as a national principal investigator for multiple clinical trials of novel treatments for critical limb ischemia.

Research Interests

Dr. Geraghty’s primary research focus has been the development and validation of new techniques to treat atherosclerotic and aneurysmal disease of the lower extremities. He has served as national and/or global principal investigator of the VIBRANT study of SFA intervention, FORMAT iliac stent trial, Lutonix Below The Knee study of paclitaxel-coated balloons for treatment of infrapopliteal disease, and the Intact Vascular TOBA II Below The Knee trial of angioplasty salvage.

Dr. Geraghty has held several leadership roles in regional and national societies. He is a past president of the Midwestern Vascular Surgical Society. Nationally, he has served as chair of the Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) Outcomes and Technology Assessment Committee and member of the SVS Lower Extremity Practice Guidelines Writing Group. He has provided advisory service to the FDA through the Peripheral Academic Research Consortium (PARC) and SVS Critical Limb Ischemia Work Group. His service to the SVS has been recognized through selection as one of the Society’s Distinguished Fellows.
