 SVS Members Proud to Volunteer at the US Army Hospital in Germany

For four years, SVS members have served as volunteer vascular surgeons at the U.S. Army’s Landstuhl Regional Medical Center (LRMC) in Germany. SVS surgeons treat wounded American soldiers transported there from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. 

“I volunteered - both this time and back in June 2008 - because it was an opportunity to demonstrate that American civilians like myself and my vascular surgical colleagues appreciate and respect the sacrifice they are being asked to make and will support them with our time and our surgical skills,” said Dr. Kevin Nolan, Chief of the Section of Vascular Surgery at Providence Hospital and Medical Centers in Southfield, MI. The list of SVS volunteers appears on

SVS volunteers consistently mention the superior care received by America’s wounded warriors from LRMC’s dedicated medical staff.  LRMC is the largest American hospital outside the United States. 

When SVS volunteers return to the States, they often share their experience. News of the SVS volunteers has been included in NBC News in Los Angeles and Cleveland; CBS and Fox News in Detroit, the New York Daily News, the Times of Northwest Indiana, and the national Veterans of Foreign Wars Magazine. The SVS volunteers’ press releases appear on
