NCVH focuses on the entire team involved in all aspects of cardiovascular interventions including cardiologists, primary care physicians, cath lab technologists, podiatrists, nurses, physical therapists and wound care specialists.  

“We bring all of the specialties that care for patients with peripheral artery disease together to find new ways to treat this common and lethal disease,” said Course Director Craig M. Walker, MD. “It is important to globally assess and provide the best patient care from the very beginning. A high percentage of patients do not need amputation, rather only some type of medical management and wound care.”

Multiple concurrent sessions offer dedicated learning opportunities for each specialty.
