UC Davis has established a center for state-of-the-art vascular care. The new vascular
center will provide comprehensive care to
patients with blood vessel diseases, such as
atherosclerosis, commonly referred to by
patients as "hardening of the arteries." The
interim director of the center is William C.
Pevec, chief of vascular surgery and professor
of surgery. The primary goal of the center is
to promote a comprehensive, collaborative
and interdisciplinary approach to treating
blood vessel diseases, allowing both established
and emerging diagnostic and therapeutic
methods to be applied. The center will increase
efficiency and reduce risks to patients.
