The Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery is pleased to announce a recent partnership with Santa Clara Valley Medical Center.  We have successfully completed contract negotiations, effective 9.12.14 which allows Stanford to provide vascular surgery services for the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center (SCVMC) beginning 3.1.15.  The agreement provides for the delivery of high quality vascular health care for patients throughout Santa Clara County, as well as extended clinical opportunities for graduate and postgraduate medical education for Stanford students at all levels.   We are proud to announce that we have recruited two very successful university surgeons (Dr. Manuel Garcia-Toca MD and Ehab Sorial MD) to the Stanford Vascular Surgery faculty, in order to fulfill the terms of the contact and enable this collaboration. We would like to thank the Office of Business Development, the Stanford Office of Legal Council, the Department of Surgery Leadership and the entire Staff and Faculty at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center for their support.  We are delighted to begin this mutually beneficial collaboration with our colleagues in Santa Clara/San Jose, and look forward to further opportunities to improve vascular care throughout Northern California in 2015 and beyond.

Ronald L. Dalman, MD, Chidester Professor and Division Chief of Vascular Surgery

The Division works continually to improve quality of life for patients with vascular diseases. We are privileged to work with an outstanding team of faculty and community vascular specialists, cardiologists and cardiac surgeons, radiologists, podiatrists, rehabilitation specialists, basic scientists, engineers and computer scientists. Our ongoing collaborations have promoted remarkable academic and clinical productivity involving new and dramatically improved techniques for the diagnosis and treatment of vascular disease, gaining the Division international recognition as a Vascular Center of Excellence.

The faculty is distinguished by expertise in many aspects of vascular disease management, but perhaps none more so than aortic aneurysm disease. Stanford Vascular Surgeons are recognized around the world as leaders in aortic aneurysm treatment and research.
