David G. Armstrong, DPM, MD, PhD, Professor of Surgery and Director of the University of Arizona’s Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance (SALSA) delivered the first “UCSF Limb Preservation Lecture” at the annual UCSF Vascular Surgery Symposium.
Alex Reyzelman, DPM, Co-Chair of the Symposium and Co-Director of UCSF’s Limb Preservation Program remarked “Since Dr. Armstrong is perhaps more responsible than anyone within this specialty of developing, living, and validating the podiatric/vascular surgery model and has been a world leader in this area for the last two decades, the choice was easy”. Armstrong went on to note that “It is wonderful to return to the Bay Area to see the great advances that are being made in creating the team approach. This is built on generations of hard work from countless clinicians from Boston to San Antonio to London to Manchester and beyond.”
The symposium, which concludes this weekend in San Francisco, welcomed hundreds of clinicians from across the nation.
