Vascular Surgery: Surgical Team

Dameron Vascular Surgery Team

Dameron Hospital brings a new level of vascular care to the residents of San Joaquin County by leveraging the brightest minds in medicine with advanced surgical techniques. With a team of highly trained vascular specialists that also maintain high volume practices at hospitals such as UC Davis and David Grant medical centers, the Dameron Hospital Vascular Surgery Program was developed to provide effective treatments for most circulatory issues.

What is vascular surgery?

Vascular surgery encompasses procedures having to do with the body’s arteries and veins. The vascular system, also known as the circulatory system, is comprised of all vessels responsible for carrying blood and lymph through the body. Though most commonly associated with the heart, the vascular system plays an important role in the proper function of many other bodily systems, such as respiratory, digestive, and urinary—so it’s important to keep everything properly flowing!

Dameron’s vascular surgery team offers solutions to issues such as:

  • Aortic aneurysm (abdominal, thoracic)
  • Carotid artery disease
  • Critical limb ischemia
  • Diabetes vascular disease and limb salvage
  • Diseases of the aorta
  • Dialysis graft and fistula management
  • Non-healing wounds caused by vascular disease
  • Peripheral artery disease (PAD)
  • Thoracic outlet syndrome
  • Varicose veins
  • Vascular malformations
  • Visceral artery disease
