The vascular system, or circulatory system, consists of the arteries and veins that carry blood throughout your body. At Yakima Vascular Associates, our mission is to provide comprehensive vascular care combined with the latest surgical procedures, advanced technology and personal service. We tailor treatment options to meet a patient's individual needs. We offer screenings, educational seminars and minimally invasive endovascular care and open surgical treatments.
Our office is set up with you in mind — a convenient location in Yakima with a patient-friendly and comfortable environment. Our staff of knowledgeable professionals is available to make your surgical experience go as smoothly as possible.
Vascular disease can happen to anyone; however, research has identified factors that may increase your risk. These risk factors include:
- Cigarette smoking
- Diabetes mellitus
- High cholesterol and lipid levels
- High blood pressure
- Older than age 50
- Inherited genetic trait
- Elevated blood levels of homocysteine (an amino acid)
