Vascular & Endovascular Surgery

The terms “vascular” and “endovascular” refer to the blood vessels. A range of vascular and circulation problems can affect people, including abdominal aortic aneurysms, carotid artery blockage, leg blockages and vein problems.

At the PeaceHealth Vascular and Endovascular Specialists clinic, our vascular surgeons are experts in treating these types of problems and are experienced in both open and minimally invasive surgery.

The Vascular and Endovascular Specialists can treat:

  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm
  • Peripheral aneurysms (aneurysms in the arms and legs)
  • Peripheral arterial disease (blockages in the legs and arms)                        
  • Carotid artery disease (stroke prevention)
  • Mesenteric ischemia (blockages in the vessels to the intestines)
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Renovascular conditions (blood vessels to the kidneys)
  • Varicose veins
  • Chronic venous insufficiency (poor blood flow in the legs)


An appointment at St. Joseph Vascular and Endovascular Specialists requires a referral. Talk with your primary care physician about whether a referral is appropriate for your vascular problems.
