"The Medical Jungle: a book by Vascular Surgeon Frank Veith, MD

Many thanks to Frank Veith, MD, renowned vascular surgeon and author of "The Medical Jungle," for a frank and informative interview!

I was particularly intrigued to speak with him about the evolution of vascular surgery over the last 50 years ago when I learned that he graduated medical school the year I was born! I particularly appreciated this quote from his book, “The Art of Medicine cannot be taught from a book.”

Here’s an affiliate link to “The Medical Jungle”:

Dr. Veith pioneered the development of vascular endografts. He did the first aortic endograft for an aortic aneurysm in the United States with an Argentinian colleague. This procedure has now nearly replaced traditional open aortic aneurysm surgery. He also championed vascular surgery limb salvage techniques.

Please watch this 30-minute fascinating interview with Dr. Frank Veith, who has an amazing perspective on the practice of medicine!
