Multidisciplinary Care, Clinical Excellence, Research Pioneer

The Division of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery provides compassionate, state-of-the-art care for patients across the full range of vascular disorders including Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), aneurysms, carotid artery disease, hemodialysis access and venous disease. The program also treats less-common disorders including complex thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms (involving the upper abdomen and chest) arterial graft infections, arterial blockage to the kidneys or intestines and thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS).

Division faculty have achieved national and international recognition as leaders in clinical innovation, surgical education, and research. The program is closely integrated with several specialized centers including the UCSF Heart & Vascular Center, a multidisciplinary team of vascular surgeons and cardiovascular specialists.

High Performing Indicator AbdominalaneurismrepairUCSF vascular surgeons have over 50 years of experience in complex abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, having pioneered many of the endovascular procedures for treating aneurysms in use today. 

UCSF Medical Center earned a “high performance” rating – the highest rating possible – for abdominal aortic aneurysm repair in the U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals survey  which evaluated data from more than 4,500 hospitals nationwide or the second year in a row. 

The UCSF Center for Limb Preservation & Wound Care, led by vascular surgeon Michael S. Conte, M.D. and podiatric surgeon Alexander M. Reyzelman, D.P.M., the first of its kind in the Bay Area, pools the expertise of vascular surgeons, podiatrists, reconstructive microsurgeons, and other specialists to provide integrated, multidisciplinary, care for patients at high risk of foot and leg amputation, particularly diabetic patients.
