The Vascular Society of New Jersey
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Herbert Dardik, MD, one of the pioneers of vascular surgery and a past president of the Vascular Society of New Jersey from 1984 to 1985.
Dr. Dardik, Chief Emeritus of Vascular Surgery at Englewood Medical Center, was a passionate educator, researcher, inventor and mentor to many current and future vascular surgeons. He was the driving force behind the Society for Clinical Vascular Surgery, reorganizing the society and elevating it to a national level. He also was the recipient of many prestigious awards and honors, including the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society for Vascular Surgery in 2017 and in 2019 he was inducted into the American College of Surgeons Academy of Master Surgeon Educators.
Despite being a clinical and academic luminary in vascular surgery, Dr. Dardik will mostly be remembered for his engaging demeanor, warm spirit and the many personal relationships he developed over many years in practice. His presence and his knowledge will be sorely missed at our meetings. He was a kind, supportive, and patient mentor who held a lifelong passion for fostering the growth of not only the medical field, but of the lives of generations of colleagues, students, patients, and the community. His presence immeasurably enriched the lives of those who had the privilege of knowing him and working with him. Our deepest condolences to his wife, Janet; his children, Alan, Michael, and Sharon, and his entire family.
