    Dr. Herbert Dardik is Chief of the Department of Surgery and Chief of Vascular Surgery at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center. He is also Director of the Vascular Fellowship Training Program. Dr. Dardik received his medical degree from NYU School of Medicine and completed his internship and residency at Montefiore Hospital and Medical Center in the Bronx. Dr. Dardik holds appointments as Clinical Professor of Surgery at Mount Sinai School of Medicine and the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.

    In addition to an active clinical practice and teaching, Dr. Dardik has published extensively in vascular surgery. He has authored 2 books, 44 chapter contributions and 156 articles. He has been an invited speaker at national and international meetings. He holds memberships in regional and national professional societies and has served as President of the Society for Clinical Vascular Surgery, the Eastern Vascular Society and the Vascular Society of New Jersey.

    Dr. Dardik is a leader in the practice of limb salvage surgery and is a renowned educator of surgeons nationally and worldwide. He was awarded the American Medical Association's Hektoen Gold Medal Award for developing the umbilical vein graft, now used worldwide to salvage limbs of the lower extremities. He also developed the everted cervical vein patch method, which facilitates the performance of carotid endarterectomy and the distal arteriovenous fistula (dAVF), a procedure that potentiates lower limb prosthetic graft patency. In 2002, The Society for Clinical Vascular Surgery conferred a Lifetime Achievement Award to Dr. Dardik in recognition of his contributions to both the society and vascular surgery.

Industry Relationships

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.

Dr.Dardik is not currently required to report Industry relationships.

Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
