The four internationally recognized physicians will deliver presentations to guide healthcare professionals treating critical limb ischemia in patients facing amputation.

MALVERN Pa., (April 5, 2022) – Four world-renowned faculty presenters are joining the Course Director lineup for HMP Global’s 2022 Amputation Prevention Symposium (AMP), the only meeting dedicated to addressing the need for education and technologies for treating critical limb ischemia (CLI) in patients facing amputation.  

The event, now in its 12th year, will take place Aug. 17-20 in Chicago, and offers training and learning opportunities for participating clinicians. Driven by a team of multidisciplinary course directors and led by Dr. Jihad A. Mustapha, a pioneer in the field of interventional cardiology, AMP provides opportunities for endovascular and vascular specialists to learn the latest advances in revascularization and explore groundbreaking techniques that will improve the future for CLI patients.

“We have worked hard to build an agenda with more than 70 multidisciplinary experts, and the additions of Drs. Brodmann, Bryce, Dua, and Scott as Course Directors make this year’s AMP meeting even more powerful,” said Dr. Mustapha, founder of AMP and the Co-Founder and CEO of Advanced Cardiac & Vascular Centers. “Attendees will come away with new approaches and techniques for treating CLI through access to complex live case broadcasts and practical education, featuring hands-on workshops and presentation of late-breaking data.”
