Welcome to the Texas Society for Vascular and Endovascular Surgery!
Message from the current President:
Lori C. Pounds, MD
Dear Members and friends,
The practice of vascular surgery has changed dramatically
since the San Antonio Vascular Surgical Society first started in the late
1970’s. What began as a local chapter of
academic, military and private practice surgeons that were dedicated to the
advancement of vascular surgery has now expanded to a state wide network of
vascular surgeons practicing the most cutting edge of today’s complex
therapies. Although our scope of
practice and our geography have greatly expanded over the last 30 years, our
society has been able to maintain its high standards and small town feel. Our once yearly academic program includes
case reviews, clinical updates and a tradition of outstanding resident research
presentations and awards.
Our list of distinguished speakers is great, and this year
it will expand with the invited speaker Dr. John Eidt. His is professor of
surgery and radiology, and division director of the College of Medicine’s Division of Vascular Surgery at the University of Arkansas Medical
Sciences. His keynote speech at the
Southern Vascular was spectacular and inspired me about teaching. I know that it will be outstanding.
Our meeting will be on Friday November
2, 2012 at the Westin La Cantera Resort in San Antonio. We look forward to your attendance and
hopefully participation with case presentations or scientific research. We will send out a call for abstracts in the
early summer and look forward to receiving them.
I look forward to seeing you in San Antonio in November!
Lori Pounds, MD
