About Us

The AVS was founded in 2001 as a charitable, educational, and scientific society to promote the field of vascular and endovascular surgery and to enhance the ability to provide vascular care and serve disparate populations.

On behalf of the Alabama Vascular Society (AVS) we would like to invite you to the beautiful Birmingham, Alabama for our Annual Meeting.  Please check our Annual Meeting page for event details.
