MALVERN, PA — Two leading medical practitioners, Richard Neville, MD, FACS, DFSVS, and Bret Wiechmann, MD, FSIR, FAHA, FSVM, have joined the illustrious roster of course directors for HMP Global‘s Amputation Prevention Symposium (AMP) in 2024. They will lend their expertise to an educational program that highlights patient experiences and the latest strategies for fighting critical limb ischemia (CLI), a severe vascular disease that can lead to amputation.

AMP 2024, taking place from August 14-17 in Chicago, offers a unique forum for vascular and endovascular specialists to stay abreast of groundbreaking techniques and developments in revascularization – methods to restore blood flow to affected limbs.

Both Neville and Wiechmann have lauded the AMP Symposium for its collaborative approach. “[The problem of amputation] continues to grow in this country in a disparate manner,” Neville said, voicing the urgent need for increased awareness about the issue. Wiechmann expressed how he is “honored to be one of the Course Directors for such an amazing educational event.”

The educational program they join is exceptional and caters to all clinicians involved in CLI patient care. Live case broadcasts and practical hands-on workshops from 65 expert faculty offer real-world application of new techniques for treating CLI.

This year, the program will also feature DVA Day dedicated to deep vein arterialization (DVA) education led by three distinguished course directors. Other highlights include the unique perspective of a former patient and discussions on the economic costs of CLI, insurance denials for CLI therapies, and late-breaking data on CLI therapy advancements.

Neville and Wiechmann’s inclusion as course directors will undoubtedly bring fresh insight to AMP’s endeavors. As Neville put it, the level of “practical information discussed in a collegial setting by all the specialties involved in preventing the problem of amputation” is vital in the fight against CLI.
