Biographical/Historical Note

The Southern Association for Vascular Surgery (SAVS) developed as a regional version of a national surgical association with the intent to focus on the southeastern United States. John Foster is credited with the original idea, which he presented in 1975 to southern vascular surgeons at an international meeting in Scotland. The association began with a 58 member roster. The mission of SAVS is to "promote the art and science of peripheral vascular surgery, to further education, and to perpetuate friendships."
