Biography

Stacey A. Bass (Trotter) attended Cornell University as an undergraduate, graduating magna cum laude with a Bachelors of Science, majoring in Biology. From there, she continued her education at the University of Virginia School of Medicine as part of the NIH-supported Medical Scientist Training Program, earning both her MD and PhD. Her graduate work was in the field of neuroscience, studying epilepsy in an animal model of subcortical band heterotopia. After completing her combined degree program, Dr. Bass went on to complete her medical training as a Diagnostic Radiology resident at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, achieving the rank of chief resident. She stayed on for a one year fellowship in Vascular and Interventional Radiology, also as chief fellow. Following her training, she joined Jefferson Radiology to practice diagnostic and interventional radiology, centered in Hartford, Connecticut. There she continued her efforts in leadership, becoming Chief of Vascular and Interventional Radiology at Hartford Hospital and Jefferson Radiology. Dr. Bass was member of the Local Practice Board for Jefferson Radiology as well as a member of the Radiology Partners Interventional Radiology National Advisory Board. She served nearly a year as Member-At-Large for the Hartford Hospital Medical Executive Committee before changing positions to become Assistant Professor of Vascular and Interventional Radiology at the Yale School of Medicine. Here at Yale New Haven Hospital, Dr. Bass serves as Co-Chief of Interventional Radiology as well as Medical Director for Pediatric Interventional Radiology where her interests are focused on the diagnosis and treatment of vascular anomalies. She is also the Director of the Yale New Haven Children's Hospital Vascular Anomalies Program. Her other professional interests include Women's Health, such as the treatment of fibroids and pelvic congestion syndrome.

OrganizationRoleDate
Radiology & Biomedical Imaging, Vascular and Interventional RadiologyI invited two malpractice attorneys who focus on radiology in Connecticut to give a seminar on malpractice law for all faculty, fellows, residents and medical students rotating through radiology and interventional radiology. I mediated the session, requesting questions in advance, to spur on the interactive discussion.2023 - Present
Vascular Anomalies Committee - Yale New Haven Children's HospitalThis is a multidisciplinary group of specialists who focus on the diagnosis and treatment of vascular anomalies. The core committee is comprised of interventional radiology, dermatology, hematology/oncology and surgery (orthopedic, ENT, general). The members work together to provide comprehensive, timely care for these complex patients to ensure the proper diagnosis is made and all therapeutic options are explored, including medical, interventional and surgical treatments.2023 - Present
Vascular & Interventional RadiologyAlong with Dr. Lagge-Gaupp, we organized a team-building exercise for the faculty, residents, medical student and staff within the interventional radiology department. We arranged for teams of a mixture of these groups to participate in an "escape room" wherein team work and communication are used to "escape" a room by solving problems/puzzles/riddles together.2022 - Present
