Our Expertise

Santa Clara Valley Medical Center Vascular and Endovascular service has been run by a Stanford recruited vascular surgery faculty. The vascular service derives its strength largely due to the interdisciplinary team that enjoys close interaction among vascular faculty, community primary care practitioners, interventional radiologists, nephrologists, cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, as well as physician assistants, research coordinators, vascular surgery fellows and residents, and clinic support staff. 

This unique working environment has resulted in remarkable academic and clinical productivity involving new and innovative techniques for the diagnosis and treatment of vascular disease.

You can expect: 

  • Surgical experience that counts with over 400 major vascular procedures performed each year. We currently perform more minimally invasive, or endovascular, abdominal aortic aneurysm repair than previously performed at the county hospital since its commencement.
  • A wide range of treatment approaches including surgical revascularization of peripheral arterial disease (PAD), minimally invasive procedures like angioplasty, stents, and new treatments for varicose veins.
  • Superior patient experience: Our dedicated and skilled clinic staff strives to deliver the highest quality of care to our patients and their families.
  • Identify the problem, find the solution 

Among our other achievements we've made significant advances in preventing stroke by identifying narrowing in the carotid artery and then clearing the blockage using surgical or endovascular techniques.

We have a deep commitment to interdisciplinary work—including daily interactions among diverse specialists and weekly interdisciplinary conferences.

In total, our vascular surgeons perform over 400 surgical procedures per year.

Our range of expertise includes:

Open and endovascular repair of thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysms

  • Carotid and vertebral surgery and stenting
  • Renal and visceral artery revascularization
  • Lower extremity revascularization and limb salvage
  • Upper extremity and thoracic outlet syndromes
  • Long-term dialysis access procedure
  • Venous surgery, minimally invasive and open techniques
