About me

Dr. Charles M. Eichler is a specialist in both traditional and endovascular surgery. He has devoted his career to performing complex operations involving all aspects of arterial circulation, including surgery of the aorta, carotid arteries and lower extremities. He has extensive experience in lower extremity reconstruction for both claudication (impaired gait from obstructed arteries) and limb-threatening ischemia (limited blood flow). He is recognized as an expert in hemodialysis access surgery, a minimally invasive procedure to create a passageway that will facilitate dialysis treatments.

Eichler earned his medical degree from St. Louis University in 1978. He completed his residency in general surgery at UCSF, followed by a fellowship in peripheral vascular surgery. He also completed a fellowship in endovascular surgery at Texas Tech University.
