The Critical Limb Ischemia Global Society (CLIGS) is a 501(c)(6) nonprofit organization founded in 2016 by Alan T. Hirsch, MD; Michael R. Jaff, DO; Barry T. Katzen, MD; Jihad A. Mustapha, MD; Dierk Scheinert, MD; and Frank J. Veith, MD. The organization is dedicated to patients and the public health aspect of critical limb ischemia (CLI), and its mission is to “improve quality of life by preventing amputations and death due to CLI.”
To accomplish this mission, we are focusing on several key issues, starting with supporting affected patients by emphasizing the public health urgency of this disease.
