For almost two decades Gina Massoglia, M.D., has been providing patients with comprehensive and informative surgical care, specializing in advanced laparoscopy and minimally invasive surgery. Now through an association with O’Donnell Vein she will be treating venous diseases at her Annapolis practice, Chesapeake Surgical Associates.

Although O’Donnell Vein may be new to patients in Annapolis, under the leadership of medical director Kelly O’Donnell, M.D., the practice has developed a formidable reputation as the “go-to” for venous disorders and wound care since it opened its first office on Kent Island in January 2010. O’Donnell Vein opened its second office in Easton in 2013. With her association with Dr. Massoglia, Dr. O’Donnell looks forward to serving the needs of patients with venous disease on both sides of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.

“The opportunity to work with Dr. Massoglia at Chesapeake Surgical Associates will allow us to help more patients,” says Dr. O’Donnell. “Gina and I have been working closely together at the Kent Island office. Our values are well matched when it comes to providing patient care,” she adds.

Board certified in general surgery, Dr. Gina Massoglia is a fellow in the American College of Surgeons. She graduated cum laude from the University of Maryland School of Medicine and completed her residency at the University of Maryland in Baltimore. “Working with Dr. O’Donnell and expanding into vein services are a natural complement to my practice. Kelly’s practice philosophy of personalized care so closely matches my own that I know this will be a great asset to our patients,” she adds.

Dr. O’Donnell’s leadership in the field of venous disease

Board certified in venous and lymphatic medicine, Dr. O’Donnell earned her undergraduate degree in microbiology from the University of California, Los Angeles, and pursued graduate studies in molecular genetics at University of California, Berkeley, before returning to Maryland to attain her medical degree. She graduated from the University of Maryland School of Medicine in 1990, and completed her internship in general surgery at the University Hospitals of Cleveland. Her residency training was in the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Her career for the next decade was in cardiovascular and critical care anesthesia at Prince George’s Hospital Center and Washington Hospital Center. In 2008, Dr. O’Donnell shifted her focus to the diagnosis and treatment of venous disease. In 2009, she received her Registered Vascular Technologist (RVT) certification, Registered Physician of Vascular Interpretation (RPVI) certification, and her board certification in venous medicine from the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine. Dr. O’Donnell has advanced training in wound healing and works collaboratively with all local wound centers.
