Why do patients see a vascular surgeon?

Many of our patients suffer from swollen, aching legs; painful, non-healing leg wounds; blood clots (DVT); dialysis access problems; varicose veins and peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Vascular surgeons also treat patients who are at risk for stokes and limb amputation by restoring blood flow to the brain, vital organs, the hands and feet.

South Bay Vascular Center surgeons bring an unmatched level of surgical and clinical expertise to the practice of vascular surgery. Specializing in difficult and complex vascular procedures our surgeons perform Carotid Artery Endarterectomy (plaque removal to prevent strokes), Endovascular Aneurysm Repairs, Peripheral Revascularization, Aortic Aneurysm Repairs, Angioplasty, Dialysis Access creation and maintenance, and procedures involving the superficial and deep venous systems.

Recognized as one of the most experienced and respected vascular surgeons in Northern California, the practice of Dr Kokinos is focused on restoring the circulatory health of their patients thereby helping them return to a normal way of life. Together, our surgeons have performed more complex vascular procedures than any other Vascular Surgeons in Northern California. Recognized as San Jose's and Silicon Valley's most respected varicose vein experts Dr. Kokinos and her staff have performed over 20,000 vein procedures over the past 25 years and are not only recognized as the most highly trained vein specialists in San Jose, they are also the most experienced varicose vein experts in all of San Jose, Silicon Valley and the entire San Francisco Bay Area.

With offices in both Campbell and Gilroy, CA our clinics are centrally located in the South Bay and are easily accessible to the patients we serve.

 

OUR GOAL IS SIMPLE: IT IS TO ENSURE THE BEST POSSIBLE OUTCOMES IN THE MOST DIFFICULT OF CIRCUMSTANCES.


WE OFFER HOPE WHEN OTHERS SAY THERE IS NONE!

    For over 12 months I went between UCSF and Stanford Clinics trying to get diagnosed because I was so ill...no one could ever find a cause to any of my symptoms....it turns out it was a blood flow problem that was making me so sick. I am very thankful I found Dr. Kokinos...

    Dr. Kokinos has been treating my vascular problems for at least 5 years. I am able to walk without pain in my legs now after femoral bypass surgery and a few stents to open clogged arteries. She is a great surgeon and I trust her completely. The office personnel are always pleasant and helpful.

    Polly and her staff are awesome. My husband had been living with vein issues for quite awhile. My theory is if you don't like something, change it! We live in Gilroy, so ideally location was an issue. I read an ad in a local paper, made an appointment for him. Vicki who schedules and is super friendly got him in that same week. He had a consultation with Polly, she explained what the treatment was, all the details, wear supportive stockings etc. and Polly is fun to talk to in addition to her professionalism. I can't tell you after all said and done, how happy he is! His confidence, self esteem and wardrobe has increased I am happy for him. We were so impressed with Polly, that I too decided to have my hands ( large protruding veins) taken care of. I use to cover them up in photos, no more! This was a great experience, we are so glad we found Polly, and if anything else "pops" up we will be back!
