The Vision of the Vascular Institute
California Pacific Medical Center’s Vascular Institute exists to mold comprehensive and collegial interaction and cooperation amongst the several services and disciplines involved in vascular care – high-tech computer imagery in radiology, polymer and metallurgy developments in surgery and advances in cardiology. The growing awareness of the complex biology of vascular disease begs a more efficient and integrated approach. A plethora of powerful new drugs continue to be developed, straining the capacity of non-specialist physicians to keep up.
The Vascular Institute brings these many fields together. Through conferences, case management discussions, quality assurance and shared facilities and mission, these providers develop and implement treatment strategies incorporating the latest knowledge and technologies. Physicians merge and improve skill sets while patients and families benefit from the efficient evaluation and completeness of the integrated approach. From risk factor modification to the latest in minimally invasive procedures, patients greatly benefit from the collegial relationships of the specialists in the Vascular Institute.
