Vascular Origin Stories (VOS) is a podcast series that explores the fun and engaging stories that shaped vascular surgery. Today we are kicking off a new origin stories series: the vascular offspring stories, where we interview practicing vascular surgeons about their vascular surgeon parents.
In this episode, we chat with Dr. Alan Dardik about his father, a pioneering vascular surgeon, Dr. Herbert Dardik. Dr. Alan Dardik recollects many great stories of his father and how he ultimately followed in his footsteps.
