  • Why did you become a vascular surgeon?

    I think vascular surgery offers unmatched opportunities for innovation and creative thinking, both in and out of the OR. It’s a challenging, stimulating, and dynamic field.

    VESS provides a great forum for networking, socializing, and career development. It’s a unique surgical society that caters to the needs of early- and mid-career surgeons, focusing on camaraderie and innovation. The winter meeting is a great mix of science and socializing.
