Happy Holidays from Modern Vascular
As we come to the end of another year, I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude and admiration for each and every one of you. It has been an exceptional year, filled with challenges and opportunities, and I am proud of the way that we have faced them together.
As we enter the holiday season, I hope that you are able to take some time to relax and recharge with your loved ones. I am looking forward to the new year and all of the exciting possibilities that it holds for Modern Vascular.
In life we have two families, the family we are born into and the family that chooses us. I am so very grateful to have been allowed entry into the Modern Vascular family and will always remember 2022 for the new relationships I established with many of you, for the adversities we faced together and for the positive impact you had on my life.
Many key players have joined along the way. It is impossible to mention all those whom I consider to be vital to this organization and whose everyday work I treasure and appreciate.
So, what does that path look like and what can we expect? While I cannot predict what the world around us will do, Modern Vascular will continue to focus on the following:
- Providing market-leading, minimally invasive endoscopic procedures, to a previously underserved population of patients including the Native American, African American and Hispanic communities, suffering from PAD, when clinically indicated, and in a timely and competent manner.
- Continuing to preserve limbs and improve lives.
- Educating our patients and their referring physicians on who we are and how we can help them through their PAD journey.
- Focusing on our patients, their needs whether physical or emotional, and their post procedural outcomes. Serving our communities and doing it with sincerity and with the highest level of integrity and ethics.
Lastly, I want to take a moment to thank our Modern Vascular owners who have shown so much commitment and dedication to the success of this organization and to the delivery of its mission, even during the most difficult and trying of times.
Today and every day, we thank you for collaborating with us to make a difference. Wishing all of you the warmest of holiday greetings and a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year!

“After a Below-the-Knee Amputation, Patient Turns to Modern Vascular to Save His Other Leg”
Prior to the amputations performed in the hospital at the end of 2020, Timothy Harris’* right leg was swollen, discolored, and experiencing excruciating cramps. First, the toes were amputated, then the foot, and finally a below-the-knee amputation was performed. When, a year later, he saw the same symptoms in his left leg, Timothy came to Modern Vascular in the hope of preventing another amputation.
