Prior to joining the vascular surgery team at St. Joseph’s Health, Blackwood served as a vascular surgery fellow at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. He has a special interest in complex endovascular repair for aortic aneurysms and completed a two-month fellowship in branched and fenestrated aortic aneurysm repairs in Nuremberg, Germany.  He completed his surgical residency at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, and Danbury Hospital in Danbury, Connecticut, where he served as surgical chief resident from 2015-2018.
