Brian I. Ludwig DO

UBMD Emergency Medicine


Professional Summary:

I work as and attending physician in the Emergency Departments at both Buffalo General Medical Center/Gates Vascular Institute and the Buffalo VA Medical Center. Prior to medical school, I had exposure to Emergency Medicine while working and volunteering in the New York Capital Region as an EMT while completing my undergraduate studies. This initial exposure in combination with great clinical rotations in medical school led me to my specialty training in Emergency Medicine.

I have a special interest in the management of neurologic emergencies, especially acute stroke. At Buffalo General Medical Center, I am the Assistant Emergency Department Stroke Director where I work alongside the Stroke Quality Committee with the goal of improving care provided to patients who arrive with acute cerebrovascular disorders.

I am also very passionate about medical education. I work closely with the Emergency Medicine Residents in several aspects including didactic lectures at Grand Rounds, clinical education, quality improvement, procedural skills, and communication skills. I hope to improve the way feedback is given to residents and medical students. In the fall of 2023, I started delivering the yearly Board Review lecture series for the UB Emergency Medicine Residency.
