Vascular surgeons only perform procedures on a small percentage of patients that they see. The primary goal of The SAVE Clinic is the PREVENTION of vascular disease and its complications. Therefore, it is never too early to be seen by a vascular surgeon if you have the risk factors for vascular disease such as being over the age of 50 with high diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, a history of smoking, heart disease, or stroke, or a family history of these problems.

Also known as bad circulation or poor blood flow, PAD often causes pain and stiffness while walking or wounds that won't heal. This is due to the narrowing or blockage of blood vessels called arteries.

It is estimated that 12%-20% of Americans age 60 and older suffer from peripheral arterial disease. Due to increased rates of smoking, diabetes, and obesity, PAD is hitting San Antonio harder than many places. The effects of PAD especially impact our Hispanic community.

The arteries that carry blood through the neck to the brain are called carotid arteries. When these arteries narrow or become blocked, they can result in up to 33% of all strokes.

By closely monitoring patient with risk factors such as a history of smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, or heart disease, we can take the appropriate steps to minimize the risk of stroke.

San Antonio has one of the highest rates in the nation for amputation due to diabetes and peripheral arterial disease. Many physicians are doing their best to treat patients and avoid this outcome, but the results are minimal.

Amputation prevention can only be accomplished through a coordinated, multi-specialty approach to patient-centered care. Wound care, podiatry, cardiology, internal medicine, primary care, and vascular surgeons, among others, all have a role TOGETHER to make a difference in our community.

When procedures become necessary to correct blockages within arteries, minimally invasive techniques can often be performed. In many cases, these procedures can be performed in the comfort of our office and patients go home the same day.

Patients at high risk for complications may benefit from having these procedures performed in a hospital setting. We strive to make patients' experience as smooth as possible when visiting our partner hospitals.

Vascular surgeons are the only specialists trained to perform every possible treatment for vascular diseases, including open surgery when necessary. In some patients, minimally invasive procedures are not sufficient to restore blood flow or prevent complications of aneurysms. In these situations, we perform any necessary open surgical procedure at one of our partner hospitals.

Surgical procedures include arterial bypass, aneurysm repair, carotid endarterectomy, and dialysis access creation.
