Come join the South Asian American Vascular Society!


To provide a forum for scientific, clinical, cultural, charitable and social interaction among American physicians and healthcare providers of South Asian origin treating vascular disease. To build bridges of support and mutual learning with physicians treating vascular disease in South Asia.


The South Asian community of Vascular Surgeons started talking about forming a group in 2008. An informal meeting was arranged at the Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) Annual meeting in 2009. Past and present officers of the SVS supported this effort. Bylaws were drafted and the South Asian American Vascular Society (SAAVS) was officially registered in 2009. Our first annual meeting was held on 6-10-2010 in Boston where a slate of officers was formally elected, and a program of scientific and human interest talks was organized.

There’s a place for everyone

There are 4 categories of membership: Candidate (students, residents, and fellows), Active (practicing physicians in the USA), International (practicing physicians outside the USA) and Affiliate (nurses, podiatrists, physician assistants and vascular technologists in the United States or Canada).
