The new UC Davis Vascular Center, comprised of vascular surgeons, cardiologists, interventional radiologists, endocrionologists and internists, is focused on treating atherosclerosis.
"" ""

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.
