North Orange County's Premier Vascular Disease Specialists

Most people think of heart disease or varicose veins when they think of vascular disease. Vascular disease, however, can take on many different forms because the heart and other blood vessels are all part of the same circulatory system. Blockage in your heart arteries may cause chest pain or a heart attack. Blockage in peripheral arteries can also result in serious health problems, such as stroke, disabling leg pain or insufficient blood flow to various vital organs such as kidneys and bowel as well as other types of limb-threatening ischemia. Vascular disease can also cause a thoracic or abdominal aortic aneurysm,  peripheral artery aneurysm or aortic dissection.

Atherosclerotic and non-atherosclerotic related problems in the outlying "peripheral" blood vessels are just as important as problems of the heart arteries. In our peripheral vascular disease practice we offer a wide range of cutting-edge endovascular and open surgical treatment options tailored to each patient's individual needs.

The entire team at Southern California Vascular Associates will work closely with your primary care physician to ensure that your vascular disease care is complementary to any existing health-related issues. Your care with us will continue even after initial treatment as we provide lifetime support for a healthy vascular system.
