IMPROVING THE LIVES OF OUR PATIENTS

Improving the lives of our patients is the foundation of everything that we do. In pursuit of this goal we strive to provide the most advanced vascular treatments available and to care for our patients in a compassionate and respectful manner.
At South Bay Vascular Center, we give our patients hope when others say there is none. By providing the most advanced vascular care available in our own state of the art angiography suite, South Bay Vascular has grown into the leading center for amputation prevention in Northern California. When other physicians say an amputation is necessary, our physicians perform diagnostic testing few, if any other centers in the area can provide. As a result, our physicians save more legs than any other doctors in the region.

Dr Kokinos and Dr Pineda perform more lower leg re-vascularization procedures than any other vascular surgeons in the area. Each year we save hundreds of patients from below knee and above knee amputations by performing specialized procedures that few other surgeons in the area are trained to perform.

Additionally, we work tirelessly to spread the word that patients facing amputation should always ask what else can be done to save their limb before going ahead with their amputations. Our goal is to educate anyone being told they need an amputation that they need a second opinion from a board certified Vascular Surgeon. When their doctors can't answer the simple question of what does the inside of their artery look like, it's time to ask for a second opinion.

But we can't do this alone! We need everyone's help to spread this message. There is hope for many patients facing diabetic amputation but, every week we see patients who have tragically already undergone an amputation without getting an informed second opinion from a Vascular Surgeon. For these patients, it's too late.

We invite everyone to use the immense power of the social network to help spread the word that there is Hope for many of these patients. Reach out to everyone you know and let them know that if they or anyone they known is facing a potential lower limb amputation they need to call our office for a second opinion.

Our goal is to stop unnecessary amputations. Please Help!
