THE BACKTABLE TEAM
"As the vascular and interventional repertoire rapidly expands, and with no dedicated knowledge base, it’s becoming more and more challenging for specialists to stay up-to-date on the best way to approach any given case. With BackTable, we aim to address this gap and improve practice globally." - Dr. Aaron Fritts, Co-Founder

To Improve Practice,
The BackTable app is made by physicians for physicians. The fields of vascular and interventional care are constantly evolving, staying in the know is a continuous effort, and outdated techniques can mean subpar care. By providing healthcare professionals around the world with an up-to-date knowledge base, we believe that we can improve patient care on a global scale.
Experts have spent years refining their technique. Many are interested in sharing what they've learned with the community,
but do not have an effective channel to do so. With the BackTable app, we've provided a space for the vascular and interventional community to share their successes and failures so every doc can stand on the shoulders of giants.
And Accelerate Innovation
The BackTable app is built for practicing physicians, industry professionals, students, and the broader medical industry. We aim to demystify vascular and interventional practice and make in-depth subject matter more accessible for med tech innovators and anyone that works alongside vascular and interventional specialists.
