Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Clinic
The UCSF Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Clinic brings together vascular surgeons and interventional radiologists to provide the most advanced treatments for disorders of the circulatory system. We diagnose and treat a complete range of vascular disorders, including arterial blockages, aneurysms, carotid artery disease, cavernous malformations, dural arteriovenous fistulae, peripheral artery disease and chronic venous insufficiency.
In addition, we have expertise in less common disorders, such as thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms, hyperhidrosis, arterial graft infections, blocked arteries to the kidneys or intestines, and thoracic outlet syndrome.
Our clinic sets the standard for treatment of the kinds of complex vascular conditions that have potentially severe consequences. This tradition of excellence and innovation continues with our development of safer, less invasive techniques for treating vascular disease, including our endovascular aneurysm repair program and catheter-based treatment of arterial blockages.
At the Vascular Laboratories at Parnassus, we also use noninvasive techniques to diagnose and monitor vascular conditions.
