Illig to be Guest Lecturer at Vascular Day March 15

Karl Illig, MD

Karl Illig, MD, director of the Division of Vascular Surgery at the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine, will be a guest lecturer at Vascular Day at Cedars-Sinai on Wednesday, March 15.

Illig's major clinical and academic areas of interest are thoracic outlet syndrome and arteriovenous access, including treatment of advanced problems. He has published over 100 peer-reviewed manuscripts, 40 chapters, multiple invited reviews and commentaries, and two books, including a multiauthor textbook on thoracic outlet syndrome.

Illig also helped develop the concept that the venous thoracic outlet plays an important role in many patients with arteriovenous access dysfunction. He has surgically treated over 90 people with this condition, using a procedure that is increasingly being performed elsewhere in the world.

A distinguished academic fellow of the Society for Vascular Surgery, Illig is a past president of the Vascular and Endovascular Surgical Society and a member of the American Surgical Association. He also serves on the Vascular Surgery Board of the American Board of Surgery, where he has been a senior board examiner for the past nine years.
