LEWISTON — Michael Ricci, M.D., chief of vascular surgery at the Central Maine Heart and Vascular Institute at Central Maine Medical Center, has been selected as a Distinguished Fellow of the American Venous Forum and will be honored with other inductees at the group’s annual conference in February.

Ricci joined the CMMC medical staff in 2012 and practices with Central Maine Vascular Surgery. He also serves in the Vermont National Guard. His long career includes many years in academia and extensive research, both of which contributed to his selection as a Distinguished Fellow.

In accepting Ricci into the group of Distinguished Fellows, AVF President John Blebea commented on the surgeon’s “outstanding history of membership in the Forum, and … remarkable achievements in the field of venous and lymphatic medicine.”

In 2013, Ricci was named chief of vascular surgery at the Central Maine Heart and Vascular Institute in Lewiston. He had been appointed as a vascular surgeon there a year earlier, specializing in disease of the vascular system, including aortic aneurysms, carotid artery disease, and peripheral vascular disease.

Ricci has long been an active member of both the Society of Vascular Surgery and the American Venous Forum, serving on various internal committees.
