Modern Vascular Vascular and Endovascular Surgeons
Dr. Pratt enjoys taking care of patients with vascular conditions. He explains that vascular surgeons see their patients long-term. It doesn’t stop at the initial appointment or after the procedure is complete. Dr. Correa made the decision to join Modern Vascular because the mission is to save legs and lives in a safe and efficient matter.
Modern Vascular’s Commitment
Modern Vascular is dedicated to increasing awareness of peripheral artery disease. An estimated 75% of American adults are not even aware of PAD, even though 8 – 12 million US adults are affected by it. Awareness is important because, according to studies, almost 90% of PAD-related amputations are unnecessary. Up to 25% of people that have diabetes are also at risk of losing some part of their leg or foot due to peripheral artery disease.
“I am thrilled to join the Modern Vascular team. The organization is dedicated to saving patients from the unnecessary risk and cost associated with amputations. I have seen the work that is being done in their clinics and am convinced their treatments represent the gold-standard for PAD care.”
Dr. Steve Berkowitz,
New CMO of Modern Vascular
