Vascular Care and Surgery

Vascular conditions affect the veins and arteries (blood vessels) that make up your circulatory system. Problems happen when a condition disrupts how blood oxygen moves through your body.You might feel symptoms such as pain, swelling or shortness of breath, although some vascular disorders have no symptoms at all.

Vascular and endovascular surgeons diagnose and treat conditions that affect the veins and arteries outside your heart and brain. Many vascular problems can be treated without surgery. Others may require endovascular surgery, which involve tiny tubes(catheters) inserted through a blood vessel in the leg or neck using tiny incisions(cuts).

At PeaceHealth, your care team will develop a treatment plan that’s right for you.

PeaceHealth offers complete care, vascular expertise and a wide range of services.

Conditions We Treat

Vascular conditions

Atherosclerosis is a condition caused when your blood vessels become narrow from a buildup of a fatty substance called plaque. This condition can raise your risk of a blood clot. Plaque that forms in the arteries in your heart is called coronary artery disease. When plaque forms in your arms and legs, it’s known as peripheral artery disease. Your doctor may also prescribe blood thinners if you’re at risk for a stroke or you’ve had one, or if you have a deep vein thrombosis.

Vascular Disease

Conditions that affect your blood vessels include aortic aneurysms (bulge in the major blood vessel), carotid artery disease, peripheral artery disease, deep vein thrombosis (blood clot in a vein) and others. We also treat varicose veins and spider veins.

Treatments Provided

Heart and vascular education

We bring together the patient and their family and friends to build a supportive and informed environment that helps empower the patient to reach treatment goals.

Endoscopic procedures and biopsies
Advances in colorectal screenings allow doctors to remove and study tissue samples during colonoscopies and sigmoidoscopies. This can help lower the number of procedures you need.
Vascular Surgery

Surgeons use advanced techniques to treat many conditions that affect the arteries, veins and lymph vessels. These include peripheral artery disease, aortic aneurysms, carotid artery disease, deep vein thrombosis and more.
